A World Heritage site, this venerable shrine will enchant visitors with its striking vermilion columns and stone lanterns set amidst a primeval forest as old as time. Thanks to a traditional rebuilding ceremony that takes place every twenty years, the buildings are in pristine condition over a millenia after the shrine's inception. A divine site that will truly take your breath away.
