Suwa Shrine, Suwa

4.5
Sited at the foot of a mountain, Suwa Shrine remains one of the oldest houses of worship in Japan. Pay special attention to the gate resting on four pillars made from firs, replaced every seven years during the Onbashira Festival. The six buildings on the shrine grounds are designated important cultural property, while the complex's repository exhibits historical treasures, such as various written documents from the imperial family and major military commanders.

  • Shimosuwa hot springs went on a trip. Within walking distance of the lower shrine Temple, harumiya. Afternoon arrival greetings and pray to the two companies, we went to the nearby harumiya Manji jizo. The next day we visited shrine morning last fall. Hope to visit early in the morning by sounds in a great big drum sound pressure from Kagura-den was a valuable experience. Hall autumn Palace (offered to be visited on the day before) comes a hot spring water from the mouth of the Dragon. Look divine, cold was so terrific.
