Amano Yasukawara

This large cave is where all the gods and goddesses are said to have gathered to discuss what to do when the world was plunged into darkness by Amaterasu-Oomikami who controls the sun.

This happened because Amaterasu-Oomikami hid in a cave after being enraged by her brother Susano-ono-Mikoto bad deeds. People visiting this shrine started to stack rocks, creating small rock spires which has added to the unique spiritual atmosphere this place has.
