Travel Guide - Kumano Nachi-Taisha Shrine

InformationInformation

Kumano Nachi-Taisha Shrine is one of the three sacred sites of Kumano Sanzan, along with Kumano Hongu-Taisha Shrine and Kumano Hayatama-Taisha Shrine. In the sacred area of the grand shrine you will find the Karasu-ishi, the stone of Yatagarasu (he three-legged crow). According to legend, this crow guided the first emperor, Jinmu, and was transformed into stone upon its return. Within its grounds you can also see the spreading branches of an 850 year-old camphor tree. This shrine is also dedicated to the god of desires fulfilled.
Nachi Fire Festival, or also called Ohgi (fan) Festival, held here on July 14 is one of the three biggest fire festivals in Japan. The festival is held to purify the Ohti-shinyo portable shrine, which receives the sacred spirit of Nachi-no-taki Waterfall. The waterfall of sparks pouring from the twelve large burning torches will draw you into a world of dazzling fantasy.
