Moon by heeeeman Moon by heeeeman
This is what you find when you venture off the beaten track.

A seemingly unkempt shrine in the middle of a forest.

Near Tazawako, Akita-ken, Japan

[Edit] update to what I use in books and whatnot

The architecture is very much influenced by nature. Shinto is the worship of nature after all :)

Great composition and scenery.. I can practically feel and smell the forest.

I surmise that this is from your trip into the real Japan? ;p

Bingo.

Or the 'other Japan' as some Japanese call it :)
