Kumano Hayatama Taisha, Shingu
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Kumano Hayatama Taisha has been a sacred spot since at least the 12th century, harboring artifacts that date back to at least the third century. Many features dotted around the site point to its origins as a center of nature worship. You'll see the revered tree that has stood on the grounds for at least 800 years. Look out for the giant rock Gotobiki-iwa, which rests half way up Gongen mountain and is said to have been the site where three Shinto deities descended from the heavens. If you're visiting around the 6th of February, don't miss the notable fire festival that takes place here, in which participants race down the mountain carrying flaming torches. Using our international travel planner, Shingu attractions like Kumano Hayatama Taisha can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
