Help other deities lure the sun goddess out of her cave and bring light back to the world at Amano Yasugawara. Following a pleasant 15-minute hike through the forest along a stream, you'll stumble upon stacks of stones, which serve as wish towers made by devotees and visitors paying tribute to the sun goddess. You can’t enter the cave, but can instead admire it from an observation deck. The cave is believed to have many spiritual powers and attracts crowds of visitors year-round.

  • Detailed score 3.9 There is a walk through the river through the Teniwato shrine. A lot of stones were piled up in the cave. It is a place of power spot. I personally liked the mountain stream on the way.

  • I visited Teniwato shrine after the visit. You have to walk along the river for about ten minutes, so you can have comfortable walking shoes. I feel like my heart is washed when I hear the sound of the river stream. A mysterious spot that millions of God came to the cave.
