Dawn at Kamikura-jinja Shrine（Kamikura-jinja-no Yoake）
"Shintai" (the body of a deity) colored by the golden light of sunrise
Kamikura-jinja Shrine, which is registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, serves as an auxiliary shrine of Kumano Hayatama Taisha Grand Shrine, and its “shintai” (the body of the shrine’s deity) is considered to be contained in a gigantic rock called the “Gotobiki-iwa Rock.” The shrine sits on a place that can be reached by climbing a steep flight of 538 stone steps. From the shrine, you can see the morning sun bathe the urban areas of Shingu City and the Kumano-nada Sea with light as it rises above them.
