  • It is a shrine built by peace late post-Shirakawa Hou Kumano faith is thriving, was built by the Qing Sheng Park and his son. If the original had become closed Kumano Kodo's capital because of the Typhoon is started the main shrine in 1 week with the Kumano ancient road tour. It is a wish for a speedy recovery.

  • The 900-year-old tree is awesome, literally. It is a symbol of divinity since it was planted by Emperor Go-Shirakawa himself, and after the pest disasters and lack of rain in the recent years causing most of the leaves to fall, the branches - which were hardly seen in the prime days, are now revealed and they looked like an astonishing replica of the Buddha with a thousand arms. This was described in Japanese on the notice board by the entrance, and I thought it was quite true. Wow.
  • Not bad for a shrine.
