Even though I would say that the main attraction of Kibune is the natural beauty of the area itself, the most visited place is probably Kifune Jinja. It is a Shinto shrine dedicated to the God of water and rain. The place is well known for its fortune-telling (omikuji) on a special paper which reveals its text only when immersed in water. In addition to visiting the shrine and enjoying the nature, during the summer time it is possible to have a meal on the platforms (kawadoko) build above the river just one meter from the water level, which is said to help escape the summer heat. It was late spring when we visited Kibune but still a bit too early for eating outside in such places. The weather was very nice, not hot as during the summer at all, with the trees still having very rich green foliage not burnt by the sun. It is hard to think any better power spot to relax and recharge oneself!
Thank you very much for watching! I hope you enjoyed the video!
