Home to a unique 13-story pagoda—the only one of its kind in Japan—and famed for its gorgeous autumn foliage, Tanzan-Jinja enshrines Fujiwara Kamatari, an influential statesman in the Asuka period. Climb the 130-step staircase beyond the torii gate to the main hall, and gaze out from the prayer hall with its traditional toro hanging lanterns for a stunning sight.
