  • Still live Wolf is somewhere in May with a mysterious air of the mountain shrine. Takes mist in the face I was about was feeling mysterious and fantastic and like wandered into another world. Especially the marriage tree Yao and closing around a charming atmosphere. Comes with dust and rust 2-3 times a year, accumulated both mind and body in our daily lives.

  • Requests came to white Chi invited friends to the Kanto power spot buy only one day each month. Hotels near Chichibu railway station departed at 6:00 the car out with the cooperation of local residents arrived at the shrine was around 14:00. And believe it or not it takes 8 hours! Seemed like there were apparently from midnight of the day before already open parking lot to wait for traffic. To buy air defense of the white so much food for thought necessary for? And the surprise was. 8:30 from the Chichibu station bus terminal, so that if I go charm is scary, just imagine it's could not arrive in time to buy. 4/1/2017, around the shrine and fallen as snow, was a very beautiful landscape. Even the air was so clear and serene. Tired harsh traffic 8 times were flush. Guardian Wolf also covered with snow and the whiteness of the snow was like Holiness are becoming more. Marriage tree will dragons come to sacred trees, cobblestone. Lots of attractions. Neighbours also tried Pork cutlet Bowl and was a great find. Just too much time because there was no I'm one day to also want to come slowly.

  • 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.
