Fukui's Abaka Kasuga Shrine

A little gem, off the beaten track, near Ichijodani

Quite near Fukui's famous Ichijodani, is a small, simple, secluded shrine, Abaka Kasuga Shrine. It was on one of the maps for the Ichijodani valley area, and on the way to the local museum, so I decided to drop in and take a look. I'm glad I did. There was nobody there, and I got the feeling that I had been the only visitor for weeks. Up a hill, and then some steps, and the some more steps...you get the idea. The shrine impressed me with its simple beauty, and the beauty of the wood. There, surrounded by trees, I was alone, and loved it.
