Makata Shrine麻賀多神社


This shrine is located in Narita City, Chiba Prefecture. The over 1,300-year old large Japanese cedar tree on the grounds is said to be the biggest in eastern Japan, and has now become popular as a power spot. Besides the Setsubun Festival and Otaue Festival (rice-planting festival) held in February and April, there is also an annual festival praying for bountiful harvests and to ward off evil on the last Sunday of July.

An incredible x rated shrine. Well worth a visit - hilarious with somber overtones. Quite extraordinary.
Reviewed:2015/03/09 So much amazing history
I have seen many shrines in Japan, nut this one was so special to me. Just being in the presence gives you a feeling of the culture. Amazing plants and sculpture entrap you. I spent quite some time...
Reviewed:2014/07/05 Breath taking.
The kind of place you never forget having been. It feels ancient and surreal. The gardens and birds and breezes through the trees. Amazing...
