A thousand-year old wooden shrine. Misty and secluded environment adds a peculiar touch. Requires an hour uphill hike, but you can drive there, too.

The story of the Samurai Minamoto no Yoshitsune saying good bye to his lover and hiding out in the "Kakure-to" Hideout Pagoda, the location at the top of Mt. Yoshino, and the Shugendo Buddhist cleansing chanting service one can participate in make Kinpu Shrine an interesting and mysterious experience
