Places where gods reside

The ancient Japanese used to regard the nature as gods by whom people were let live.
They sensed something divine in natural beings such as mountains, lakes, huge rocks and magnificent trees and in seasonally changing natural phenomena such as snow, rain, wind and clouds. Such a sense still remains in people's heart and they, including myself, wish to commune with the awe-inspiring nature.
Nowadays, we can easily step into the places that were once considered as the domain of gods, but the landscapes of the nature must have been miraculous in the eyes of the ancient Japanese.
Such sights of the nature made them feel the existence of gods in natural beings like mountains.
