The precinct of Kasuga Taisha is home to stunning vermilion-lacquered shrine pavilions, and has long been famous for its beautiful wisteria. Within the precinct also lies the Kokuho-den Hall, which stores and displays many cultural assets, including 354 national treasures and 1,482 important cultural properties. Moreover, on the sacred Mt. Mikasa, where logging has been prohibited for over 1,000 years, is a primeval forest of ever-green broad leaf trees such as oak and Japanese chinquapin.
