  • One of my best Japan experiences so far, and I've been here for almost a year already. The shrine complex is beautiful, surrounded by big trees and beautiful stone stairs and tori that lead you to your pray. The staff was absolutely lovely, and they were astonished when I said I was from Brazil. They also had goshuin, one of my personal tasks in Japan, but it was a printed paper, which was then filled with and glued to my goshuin-cho. Apparently the temple master or apprentices, usually responsible for the goshuin were not present at the moment. They also have a museum about the Doburoku Festival, which is introduced by a 10 minute video about the preparation and costumes of this festivity. You can then, proceed to the museum, getting to see all the instruments, costumes and live a little bit of the festival, while the festival music (a very traditional Japanese song) welcomes you in. At the end of this tour within the festival history you are invited to taste the local sake, made only for the festivity. One of the temple staff were very kind to explain me that the sake is nowhere to be found but at that temple, and gave me a english cart explaining a bit more. The sake is like nothing I have tasted before, it's still not completely matured, so you can see some of the rice still present. But it has a unique and strong taste (They told me it's around 15% alcohol content). If you're visiting Shirakawa-go, the Shirakawa Hachiman Shrine is a must, specially if you are into temples and shrines like I am.
  • A silent and peaceful place with great old trees

  • Visited anime not knowing was the great shrine. We look at EMA, but all good things pictures. You can just drop by. Mid-August, at the end of the summer at the shrine of Tanna to listen! Gave up and tried to take a video, but also preyed or singing along, picking up other cricket chirps. 18:00-19:00 while singing. But I don't know the Anime fans who cry higurashi listening in the Holy land would be unbearable. Please try.
