SpotNonomiya Jinja Shrine

Nonomiya was originally the residencey of the chosen princess of Ise-jingu Shrine - a place for her to stay for purification and blessing. "The Tale of Genji" also made its first appearance at this temple, but the main attraction is the torii of black wood (shrine gate at the entrance), carpeted with a layer of moss. This shrine is famous for the god of matchmaking that is said to dwell here. In the forest's still silence, this is a shrine filled with an air of refinement.
