Sumiyoshi Shrine住吉神社


This shrine is known as one of the three biggest Sumiyoshi Shrines in Japan along with the Sumiyoshi Shrine in Fukuoka City and Osaka City. The main shrine is designated as a national treasure, and the hall of worship, built by donations from MOTONARI Mori, is an Important Cultural Property. An annual festival is held from December 8th to 15th , where shimenawa rope is spread all over in the grounds, meaning that general visitors cannot enter, and priests cannot leave and must purify themselves.

          Yamaguchi Main Areas


          Heading west along Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you’ll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we’re not talking just the usual fish dishes—the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
