Atsuta Jinja

Posted 14th November 2011 • ArchivePrevious PostNext Post

(One of) the (many) nice things about Japan is you are never far from a shrine, wherever you may be, and that normally means big, old trees. During a quick trip to Nagoya I dropped in on Atsuta jinja, home to a very fat kusunoki (Cinnamomum camphora), as well as some very pleasant sacred woodland. Call me predictable, but f there are two things I'm a real sucker for, it's fat camphor trees, and scared woodland....
