Furumine Jinja

Our guide informed us of a unique shrine and Gardens that seldom received tourists from America, and that it was good place to have lunch. We enjoyed both the shrine and the magnificent grounds complete with Waterfalls. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed but it was well worth the visit.

Oya Stone Museum

Reviewed By Asterix135 - Toronto, Canada

This is a big emptied out underground stone quarry. As such, it's not nearly as interesting as natural caves can be, but is still kind of cool in an of itself (and is also, literally cool, at a constant 10º or so).
The place has been used for movies and events, so there are some created terraces etc. in the space that look neat.
I'm struggling to find more to say than "it was a big stone cavern." It's sort of interesting, but not worth making a huge diversion for.

I've been visiting quite many garden in Japan, each one has chàracterístic and beauty. This garden is in the huge natural forest so you won't find any contemporary object in your site at all. This is the difference with other Gardens in Japan.

Kanuma Buttsuke Autumn Festival

The Kanuma Buttsuke Autumn Festival is a regular event held by Imamiya Shrine at various locations in the historic district. 23 Extravagant festival cars called chokoku-yatai (engraved floats) are paraded around the streets of Kanuma. On the first day, the chokoku-yatai are marched in and out of Imamiya Shrine, and after the citizen parade on the second day, the festival cars are split into four groups and depart from four different intersections, coming together at one intersection for the yatai soroihiki (gathering and presentation of floats). A highlight of the festival is the recital contest of the buttsuke - the traditional orchestra that announces the floats.

ユネスコ無形文化遺産登録申請中だそうです。提灯や彫刻で綺麗に飾られた屋台をぶっつけあうところから、このお祭りの名前がついたとのこと。屋台をぶっつけあっている時も、お囃子の演奏を止めません。現地への交通ですが、東武線の新鹿沼駅が便利です。

Oya temple

Reviewed By Shikataganai73 - Guam, Mariana Islands

The Heiwa Kannon-zo (Kannon Peace Statue) was interesting because it was carved into the stone. Prior to entering this area, you are mesmerized by the entrance way which looks like you are entering a mountain passage of stone. There is a staircase to the left and from there you can see the view of the Oya Temple behind the statue as well as the area in front (it is quite a climb up the stairs, so make sure you are hydrated and rest along the way if you get winded easily). Afterwards, I went to the temple and was awestruck by the 11,000 year old human remains and the statues carved into the wall. Photography is not allowed in the temple area that showcases the 1000 armed Oya Kannon goddess of mercy statue. Past this area is a small museum that houses the 11,000 year old human remains found at this site as well as the other artifacts from the excavation. Beyond this area there is are two area with the Bridges, the first one has the two statues of snakes (coiled and uncoiled). Some visit to give their donation and ask for blessings by rubbing the snake's head.

Imamiya Jinja Shrine

Reviewed By 2catsinJP

If you visit this shrine during the second weekend in October, you will think it's an amazing place. If you visit any other time of the year, you will think "meh, another shrine".
Hence my rating of "very good".
In October the shrine hosts the Kanuma Fall Festival and it's busy and crowded and filled to capacity with festival floats and teams that pull them.
Other times of the year, it's just an average main shrine.

日光との境に近い鹿沼の秘境にある渓谷。渓谷に至る道は狭く、すれ違いも困難なほどですが、紅葉の時期に行くととてもきれいです。渓谷の上流には滝もありますので、それを目標の一つとして行ってみるとよいでしょう。

Oya Heiwa Kannon

Reviewed By HXZ_HZX - Singapore

You will drop by here after visiting Oya stone Museum which is about 5 mins drive away. While the stature is certainly majestic, I find it difficult to visit this attraction just on its own. So do pair up with a visit to Oya stone Museum. There is a temple (fees apply) nearby which is the parking area where you can see more Buddha carvings in an enclosed cave and an exhibit of a mummified monk before Christ...
