Onioshidashi lies right beneath an active volcano, mount Asama. Its last major eruption in the late 18th century saw a lava flow run northwards. It eventually dried up, leaving this incredibly spectacular mineral landscape made of sharp dark stones. And right in its middle, stands the shrine. I tend to be easily fed up with the countless japanese shrines… but this one really stands apart. Not for the temple itself, but for its immediate surroundings.

Gear used: Fujifilm GFX 50s + 63mm f/2.8
