Furumine Shrine

"Tastes of JAPAN by ANA" is a regional vitalization project that collaborates with the different prefectures in Japan to present the Land of the Rising Sun in all of its diverse glory.

The shrine is also famous for enshrining the Tengu, a legendary creature with magical powers said to be the messenger of the prince and which wards off disasters.
