Kibune (貴船), Japan
Kibune is renowned for the beautiful Shinto shrine found on its main street. You’ll have to climb a lot of steps (84 to be exact) to enjoy Kifune Shrine (貴船神社), but it’s just the price to pay to pray to the Shinto deity of water, revered in this place.
According to legend, a goddess traveled in a boat from Osaka all the way up the river into the mountains north of Kyoto, and Kifune Shrine was built at the site where her boat journey had come to an end.
