Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
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. Our Suwa vacation generator makes visiting Suwa Shrine and other Suwa attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
