Mysterious natural beauty of ancient times

Shirakamisanchi

It is a pristine forest of beech which was registered as Japan's first world heritage site and almost completely unaffected by anything artificial.

There are Japanese beech trees and this world of trees that has been kept for over 8000 years is very quiet and mysterious.
