Spiritual / Power Spots - Temples and Shrines

Japan is a unique country with countless spiritual spots. Buddhist temples and shrines are believed to be the source of these powers. The powers come from the spirits and Gods that reside in the temples and shrines. A shrine believed to be a particularly strong power spot is Meiji Shrine which is said to gain its power and energy from the Gods which reside in the trees of the shrine.
