Source: @347ki Japanese Traveler Discovers Spooky Shrine Path That Could Spirit You Away 2016-08-22 Mon 2016-08-22 Mon For all of Japan's natural beauty, it's some to some particularly bone-chilling and scary spots. While many of these spooky areas have some sort of unnerving history to them, it's often the unexplained that give us the most creeps. Take, for instance, this seemingly forgotten shrine, overtaken by nature and perhaps other things, spotted by Japanese Twitter user @347ki.

While many would be put off by this worn down path, @347ki was filled with curiosity and headed down to see what laid in wait at the end.

Source: @347ki Source: @347ki As it turns out, the creepy pathway leads to Fushimi-Hakuseki Shrine in Yokosuka-shi Taura. While Japan has many major shrines that have routine visitors, there are also many smaller local ones that do not see many guests. Because of this, their torii gates and architecture become rusted and battered down by the elements, and the paths that lead to them become reclaimed by nature. Taking a trip to these lesser known shrines might be an even more rewarding experience than some famous tourist spots. The way with which they appear as they may have in Japan's early days spirits you away to an untouched Japan. But perhaps also a slightly scarier one. @347ki 誤った情報を垂れ流しておくのアカンので、最初のはツイ消ししておくよ。私が行ったのは横須賀市田浦の伏見白赤稲荷社ですよ。 pic.twitter.com/IPmvnz1Bt8— ･*✽❆: .｡.:*･゜ﾟ･* (@347ki) 2016年8月21日 By - grape Japan editorial staff.
