A quietly beautiful shrine

Japan's Aso region is the source of Mellow Monk's green tea and home to a wide range of natural and cultural beauty.


Nestled in the hills at the north edge of the Aso valley is an important cultural heritage site, the quietly beautiful Kokuzo Shinto Shrine.



An example of the intricate woodwork of the main shrine building.
