I visited three shrines at Hakone, Kanagawa Prefecture, as my belated New Year’s visit to shrines. The three shrines I visited were Hakone Shrine, Kuzuryushrine and Hakone Mototsumiya Shirne – visiting these three shrines are called “Hakone Sanshamairi”. In additon, I visited Narukawa Art Museum where I was able to see panoramic view of Lake Ashi.
