Suwa Shrine, Suwa
(4.4/5 based on 240 reviews on the web)
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.

  • View autumn leaves about, visited in late October. Suwa Taisha, one of Japan's oldest shrine in the origin of ōkuninushi objected to okuninushi in Kojiki were faced with the conveyance of the land from the grandson of Amaterasu's second son escaped to Suwa. On the company (before the shrine, hongu), above and below are located on the other side of the Lake, which are divided into four locations under the companies (harumiya, autumn Palace) takes about 30 minutes by car to move. For any halfway up the Hill, near the non-commercial, in a quiet atmosphere can Sangu. Parking is also free. Buildings without a particular flamboyance, either as simplicity, as well as feel the weight of history calms the mind. 6, each stood is replaced by famous onbashira (this year was the year) at the 4 corners of each Palace and the many locations is also available.

  • It is said Suwa tribe and the Azumi-tribe of old history and formality to Suwa Taisha. Bill allowed eaters around here had long ago banned meat-eaters. Isolation of deer food with chopsticks. Education also is so good.
