Kibitsu shrine and it's surroundings are a stunning showing of the Japanese traditions and architecture. The surroundings are very variable and I love the overall mood in this place. I visited during a heavily rainy day and it wasn't a problem at all. I would...More

I visited this temple en-route on a cycling trip through the Kibi Plains. It is a beautiful temple complex, off the tourist track. Serene and peaceful.

To Japanese, this may be a very sacred shrine. For tourists, it is just another shrine. It is easily accessible by the JR, and you will be getting off at one of the smallest stations you may have ever seen. You would then need to...More

One of my more favourite shrines in the local area. There's a lovely walkway that is absolutely stunning in spring. You can get omikuji, or the goshuin (calligraphy by a priest) of the temple. These are very fun to collect in a goshuincho, or temple...More
