Shirataki Takigyo Waterfall Meditation Experience in Toba

About the Activity

The Kami (God) of Shirataki has been trusted by local people as a god of natural faith for over 1300 years. It is a sacred place where trainees stand below waterfalls to purify their mind and spirit. The whole forest connects with the Kami and is still loved by the locals as a “Forest for prayers” for the last 1000 years. If today’s complex society is leaving you tired and in need of refreshment, we suggest a reconnection with nature through the waterfall here and a mountain walk. We pray for tranquility in your hearts and the renewal of your spirit.
