  • Kanto is most famous as a strong power shrine. I went to get precious amulet sold only one day each month here. It is enough information out there usually is when not crowded so special as on this day and take two or three times more than usual buses from the station. Congestion is bad for most passengers off along the way and do the walking. Shrine is at the top of the mountain, so reasonably gradient approach to the environment. I think it's a bit tight for the elderly. When lined up to visit is the power of rumors, but suddenly the suffered from dizzy lightheadedness and a lost sense of balance. Anemia and is obviously different, returned to normal at the moment, but I thought this strong power of the shrine. Because it did not come true purposes was us this amulet, so other places slowly, touching the sacred tree, the next time you want to visit slowly.

  • Ki amulet white sheathed sacred one day every month whenever you may deepest mountain also quite solemn atmosphere is received new year as people would rather yell is required. Ready to hit early morning still better into the parking lot from the noon position for 1 hour is required. More time could stay in a shrine in the area about 2 km ago features car is near the heliport be parked there, walking is recommended. Stone grounds aside in 2012, the year of the Dragon is the look that a Dragon pattern. It is reminiscent of this shrine is too mysterious and atmosphere. As mountain climbing, even once to return to Chaya okumiya shrine to also come to let go. But not as rapidly as it can be reached in less than 1 hour is clearly different from "atmosphere". So should feel and say this city is only a small shrine which is always good climbing, please visit. Since then hot springs is great!

  • Give you power and worth to visit!
  • We crowded, morning crowded around 7 pm, but arrived at around 9 pm bus groups, etc.. Also it seems to jam. Dogs are also to worship together. You could take fantastic pictures, fog has cloudy day visited. Go so deep in the mountains on the car and the special service buses, there are apparently. (IC card can be used as is)

  • Unusual shrines that Wolf is God doing (guardian) Kanto three major power spot. Like the mysterious, unique sense of feel at the moment passed through the gate and up the stairs from the parking lot. On my way home I bought Ki charm. So out of the way, R140, trail from the dam is not two-way streets where attention is required. (Especially near the tunnel)

  • Shrine in the mountains because air is invigorating, the sacred tree is very powerful. Interesting decorative details of the shrine is gay, look at your environment around. But until I went to the shrine in the spit power before reaching the power spot is beaten in a brutal 3D curve guwannguwann turn left or right while climbing the mountain even though drinking sickness tablets prior to car sickness, was supposed to have. Not car sickness Constitution go 2 degrees, so bought a 500 Yen one amulet (he can return to the shrine) to commemorate, I went back.

  • The earlier, kumotori mountain trailhead as mitsumine shrine has already gone through. Not realizing that at that time, a famous tourist attraction. Find out the most popular in the trip Advisor, we traveled the Chichibu and visit again. 15:00 parking place, despite past traffic jams. Popular than expected. Has a shrine with colorful look at Chinese temples. Similar to Toshogu Shrine. Look good atmosphere by the stone, and none ever list of donor money. On the steps of the shrine prayer for business prosperity or commercial name array. I love shrine in any town, but this hand is weak. Ohyama afuri shrine is the same. Look into a symbol of the desire of the masses.
