Behind Takeo Shrine is a vast bamboo grove, in whose silent midst stands Ohkusu – a 3000 year old sacred camphor tree , widely considered one of Saga Prefecture’s spiritual highlights. With its breath-taking natural surroundings, the air of silent mystery that suffuses this beautiful grove has made it a much desired sightseeing spot.
