The Road to Oku-no-In

Sometimes it's the journey, not the destination

Oku-no-In means 'the inner sanctuary', and it's a name given to temples and shrines that are set back, away from the taint of the world. Behind Omishima's grand Oyamazumi Shrine, I found signposts to Oyamazumi Oku-no-In. I had to see this! I followed the path, and although I wasn’t impressed with what I found at my destination, the journey itself was marvelous.
