あ is for Amanawa Shinmei Jinja

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Amanawa Jinja is one of the little shrines that doesn’t get much attention. It might be quiet most days, but it sure knows how to party: it has one of the best small-scale bon festivals around, taking place in early September.

Amanawa Jinja, which enshrines Amaterasu, the sun goddess, is the oldest shrine in Kamakura.
