Tanzan Shrine

Tanzan Shrine

Though not among the most famous Shinto spots in Japan, Tanzan Shrine in Nara stands out for both historical and architectural qualities. The complex of buildings is located in the Tounomine Mountains next to the historical Sakurai city, the so-called “Nikko of Kansai”, which is constantly mentioned in the Man’yōshū (the oldest existing collection of Japanese poetry).
