"Tabooed land," a type of sacred space. Normally found within a shrine's precincts (keidaichi) or related lands, humans are not permitted to enter tabooed land since it is believed that a divine spirit dwells or descends. Typical examples of tabooed land would include the "divine mountain" (shintaizan) of Mt. Miwa at the Ōmiwa Shrine, and the area behind the haiden of the shrine Isonokami Jingū.
