Getting To Miwa Shrine
The easiest way to get to the Miwa Shrine, the start of the both Yamanobe Trail and Mount Takakusa Miwa route trail, is by bus. There's the bus service from JR Yaizu station. Get a bus departing from #1 gate of the terminal. There's one or two bus services every hour from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Then get off at Miwajinja Iriguchi bus stop. Memo down the kanji of destination bus stop because all the info boards and announcements in the bus are in Japanese.

Sho'ouin Temple is the in the middle part of Okabe Stop. Kashiwaya Grand Inn is only a five-minute-walk away. To get to Kashiwaya go along the Tokaido Highway northward.
