Oyada-jinja Shrine大矢田神社


A Shinto shrine located in the Kaededani Valley at the foot of Mt. Tennozan which was founded over 2,000 years ago. The current main shrine was built in 1672 and is notable for its extravagant carving and showy coloring similar to the Nikko Toshogu Shrine, a style which flourished in the early Edo period. The most magnificent structure in the city, this building is also designated a National Important Cultural Property. Some 3,000 Japanese mountain maples grow on the shrine’s grounds, making it one of the leading destinations for enjoying fall foliage in the prefecture. The shrine holds a Momiji Festival celebrating maples and fall foliage which lasts from early November to early December; the shrine also holds the Oyada Hinkoko Festival, a designated National Selected Intangible Folk-Cultural Property, in the spring and in the autumn.

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan's greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture's traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
