... 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. It's absolutely breathtaking when combined with the natural beauty of the place. There was so much to ...
