Shirakawa Hachiman Shrine Festival Hall Reviews
白川八幡神社は白川郷合掌造り集落の中にある神社で、白川郷のパンフレットに載っていた3棟並びの合掌造りを見に行く途中にありました。境内には杉の大木があり、結構広い神社でした。端の方にあるので観光客は少なかったです。 more »Shirakawa Hachiman Shrine is a shrine located in the shirakawa-go-go-sai-ji village, and i was on my way to see the three buildings that were listed in the shirakawa-go pamphlet. There was a large cedar tree in the precincts, and it was a considerably large shrine. There were few tourists because it was toward the end.

As in many places of the village is full of tourists and it is difficult to take beautiful photos and many stop here to replenish the bottles with water or have shelter from the sun Sin Sin ignorance
Came here on a Sunday and apparently the shrine is closed that day. This was my main reason for coming to Gifu and I couldn’t even see the Higurashi drawings that other fans made :’(
One of my best Japan experiences so far, and I've been here for almost a year already. The shrine complex is beautiful, surrounded by big trees and beautiful stone stairs and tori that lead you to your pray. The staff was absolutely lovely, and they were astonished when I said I was from Brazil. They also had goshuin, one of my personal tasks in Japan, but it was a printed paper, which was then filled with and glued to my goshuin-cho. Apparently the temple master or apprentices, usually responsible for the goshuin were not present at the moment. They also have a museum about the Doburoku Festival, which is introduced by a 10 minute video about the preparation and costumes of this festivity. You can then, proceed to the museum, getting to see all the instruments, costumes and live a little bit of the festival, while the festival music (a very traditional Japanese song) welcomes you in. At the end of this tour within the festival history you are invited to taste the local sake, made only for the festivity. One of the temple staff were very kind to explain me that the sake is nowhere to be found but at that temple, and gave me a english cart explaining a bit more. The sake is like nothing I have tasted before, it's still not completely matured, so you can see some of the rice still present. But it has a unique and strong taste (They told me it's around 15% alcohol content). If you're visiting Shirakawa-go, the Shirakawa Hachiman Shrine is a must, specially if you are into temples and shrines like I am.
