  • A lot of shrines have forested areas, but they’re often quite manicured. Keta Shrine was like it was made with the forest in mind. Some parts were downright Ghibli-ish, especially the torii that led.....  more »
  • It is well worth walking on the trail behind the shrine, where nature has been left untouched. It is also reported that UFOs have been sighted here. I was privileged to receive a warm welcome from...  more »
  • One of the five important shrines in Japan,so they say. The shrine name appears in old documents that dates back more than 1500 years.Behind the shrine is ten thousand tsubo forest (about 40000 sq meters.) Nobody can step into this forest and the chief priest says the forest itself is God, good example of Japanese shinto animism. You can hike around the forest that take about 45 minutes. As a very old institution, the shrine inherited many ceremonies and legends. Former emperor Hirohito, who was something of a naturalist, paid a visit here to be allowed to step into the sacred forest a few steps and left a waka poem. A historical landmark and possible power spot in the area.
  • Noto country Ichinomiya (short of number one's shrine). That is worshipped in the marriage, accompanied by women who were visited in the intently. Honestly, the environment we ordinary worshippers and the main shrine is more compact than I thought. Okumiya Speck with ordered location without entering the forest per serving, enter its name but not, it increases the importance. Hakusan shrine and wakamiya shrine and on either side of the main building, both designated important cultural properties. That's when a vast "Vietnam country" (including part of the Yamagata area along the Japan Sea from Fukui today) was divided into eight centuries (various circumstances is complicated but) this area is "Science and technology", was our science and technology country Ichinomiya. Literature teleread luxury bureaucracy Yakamochi etchu Mamoru was 'Manyoshu', writes the songs. Character height is from the ancient mysterious enough, and knighthood subject first from the Imperial Court in the 9th century, Meishin-Taisha Shrine in the engishiki. Here's "digits" shrine, but the naoetu, Joetsu City, Niigata Prefecture, country Ichinomiya in many (Kota) shrine, shrine, there is. "Like many shrine" is distributed to the Taj, Noto and Kaga, etchu, Echizen also ruled Japan Coast "Kota / digit" of God, so there was a time maybe.
