So lets do something a bit different.

Its so humid and hot we dont want you to walk too far….this is only a 7.5km trip and is MOSTLY IN THE SHADE of the forest.

(PIC: PLEASE PLEASE LOOK AT THE CAVE COURSE!!)

What does this Iwafune Shrine course have???

It has a bit of everything. 

🌠1. A nice canopy boardwalk

🌠2. Huge tunnel waterfall, 

🌠3. Very high viewing platform with awesome views

🌠4. Of course, this increible cave with an amazing story!!

TO FEEL WHAT AN EVENT IS LIKE, LOOK AT THIS SHORT YOUTUBE VIDEO (NOTE:I couldnt film inside the cave cause they wouldnt let me): 

“Iwafune  Shrine worships Nigihayashi no Mikoto. Nigihayashi no Mikoto came to this place from the air by Ame no Iwafune. Then Ame no Iwafune became a huge rock 12m x 12m in dimension.”

THE SHRINE HAS A ROCKY CAVE ABOUT 35~40 METRES IN LENGTH. ITS DARK AND YOU MUST HAVE SUITABLE SHOES (RUNNERS, WALKING SHOES…NO SANDALS OR HEELS).

WE WILLL ENTER THIS CAVE TOGETHER, ITS DARK, NARROW AND A BIT SLIPPERY BUT EVERYONE CAN DO IT!!

Since the medieval era, many practitioners of Shinto and Shugendo go in cave for training their bodies and cleansing there souls.

(VIDEO No. 2:  Climbing a tall viewing platform with awesome views)
