Kumano Shrine & Seven Cedars

If you drive around the countryside of Japan, you will sometimes come across this kind of small shrine standing alone in the middle of the field. And I always got drawn into it. I really love this lonesome atmosphere. After you get through the path along rice fields and climb 150-step stone stairs, the main shrine and seven big cedars show up in front of you.

Address:1968 Nunobe, Murakami city, Niigata
