Recommended routes

    Japan's new trend, an accommodation bookshop is like a secret hideaway in a stylish place. After enjoying reading at your own private and special space, take a trip to the Dazaifu Tenman-gu Shrine, known for Wisdom of God. Great itinerary with art, literature and so much more.
    Recharge your spiritual power at the ancient Kanda Shrine, which has stood watch over the capital of Edo (Tokyo) for 1,300 years, before heading off to a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of Japan’s greatest mystical locations for blessings of good fortune, Munakata Taisha shrine. Nourish your mind and soul by coming in contact with the raw faith that arises from within human beings.
