Suwa Taisha is a complex of four shrines located in Suwa City, Nagano Prefecture, Japan.

Welcome dear travel fans! I've been traveling around the world for 20 years and most of my trips were to Asia. I think I have been crazy about Japan since I was a child and will be happy to share this passion with you.
The shrine is dedicated to the god Takeminakata-no-Kami, who is said to have descended from the heavens to the Suwa region and is considered the protector of the Suwa area. The architecture of the shrine is a mix of Shinto and Buddhist styles, with the main hall being a designated national treasure of Japan.
Visitors to the shrine can take part in traditional rituals, such as purchasing and dedicating omamori (good luck charms) and ema (votive tablets) to the shrine. The shrine also holds several festivals throughout the year, including the Onbashira Festival, which is held every six years and involves transporting large logs down from the surrounding mountains to the shrine.
The shrine is surrounded by a picturesque forest, which is especially beautiful during the autumn season when the leaves change color. The shrine is also located near Lake Suwa, which is the largest lake in Nagano Prefecture and a popular destination for fishing and boating.
