... most of the crowd there. Waterfalls trickled down the hillsides and green moss covered giant stone lanterns lining the paths to the shrines. Over a dozen buildings make up the complex, and unlike most shrines (Shrines hold the deified spirits of the dead-not the bodies) in Japan, these are elaborately carved and painted or covered in gold leaf.
