hundreds of shrines dotted around Yosano

This is just one of hundreds of shrines dotted around Yosano. One of the pleasures of Yosano is continually discovering new shrines in the most unlikely of locations - hidden between houses, or clinging to the side of mountains. Furthermore, they are almost always empty, and as such offer the opportunity to take a moment to pause, breathe in the pure mountain air, and reflect. (Or, indeed, toss a coin in the bucket and offer up a prayer). Whether or not you follow Shintoism, these shrines are a space to spend a few minutes listening to the rustling of the trees or, if you’re lucky, the tune of songbirds. There are few things more calming.
