Historic Nara sightseeing spots

Japanese who values both God and Buddha

STAY >Ancient shrines of Japan and temples of Chinese origin

Shinto and Buddhism are mainly transmitted to Japan.

Shinto is a traditional Japanese teaching rooted in daily life, and Buddhism is considered a religion of foreign origin. We have embraced both without any distinction, and have lived in a way that suits the times. There is a history of keeping mind in harmony through flexible thinking.

Ohmiwa jinja Shimenawa

Ohmiwa jinja Shrine is said to be the oldest shrine in Japan.

Every December, new ropes are displayed to indicate the barrier between the sanctuary and the world. Mt.Miwa itself is said to be God, and there is still a style of worshiping nature.

In Nara Prefecture, Kasuga taisha Shrine and Kashihara jingu Shrine are also known as shrines with many visitors.
