Enfin, j’ai découvert totalement par hasard, dans la campagne de Wakayama, le magnifique temple Itakiso-jinja, dédié au dieu du bois et pouvant débarrasser de la malchance. Le temple se trouve à la station Idakiso dans un coin de campagne paumé. Le complexe est entièrement boisé et respire la sérénité. Le temple en lui-même, tout de bois, est majestueux et impressionnant. Les sculptures, la boiserie et son toit de chaume complète le tout pour un temple original et touchant.
