  • Unless you are interested in Japanese history or folklore, this shrine is nothing special. Here the object of worship is rock wall itself, reflecting ancient way of Shinto.  more »
  • Saw the written world heritage Hana-no-Iwaya and later visited the Lion Rock road signs. I learned climbing flag nearer but wondered what world heritage site first for the free parking, is in fact a shrine. In Japan's oldest shrine? The gigantic rocks appeared immediately, walking precincts and go up towards the back. Like a rope extending above the rocks could also book the rock itself is like knowing. Seems like if God dwells in this rocky, did not.

Said Japan is recorded in the Chronicles of Japan's oldest shrine, has only 巨巌 of about 45 m in height, was a mysterious atmosphere.
