Did you know: Power spots in Japan

by Takahiro Takiguchi
Stripes Japan

Japanese often associate “Power Spots” with Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples, along with large mountains, islands and lakes. In fact, there are about 165,000 shrines and temples, more than three times the number of convenience stores (50,000) within the nation. Among tens of thousands of Power Spots,  Meiji Shrine (Tokyo), Osorezan (Aomori Pref.), Ise Shrine (Mie Pref.), Miyajima Island (Hiroshima Pref.) and Izumo Shrine (Shimane Pref.) are extremely popular and widely worshiped.
