Iwado Shrine (イワドジンジャ)

  • 99984views

Tucked away deep in the mountains of Unzen, Iwado Shrine is not like the shrines one would see in a city, but instead, it is a nature surrounding magical spot that slightly resembles the scenes that one would see in Studio Ghlibi’s animation movies. This place is also known to be a “power spot” by the locals, and the best part is that there are always so few people here.

The actual shrine itself is located inside a cave-like shaped rock. Near the shrine is another large rock with a slight cliff inclining towards the open area in the forest. On a pouring day, the rainfall that flows down from the cliff shaped rock creates a small waterfall, adding to the sound of nature that echoes through the forest.
