Cherry Blossoms at Kamikura-jinja Shrine(Kamikura-jinja-no Sakura)


Spring at Kamikura-jinja Shrine

The “shintai” (literally meaning “the body of a deity”) of Kamikura-jinja Shrine, which quietly stands halfway up Mt. Gongenyama, manifests itself as the form of a huge rock called the “Gotobiki-iwa Rock.” In spring, cherry trees bloom beautifully and add extra color to the Gotobiki-iwa Rock (the shrine’s shintai) and to the red-colored structures in the precincts of the shrine.
