  • This is my 3rd visit. You can very feel power. So the temple at here to try! And purchased. By the way... Is a sacred secret fans B'z 178 number found in the parking lot, was happy to see (glutinous, my is 178) is not going it alone, of course, doesn't it! This incredible power. Better climb stairs if you recommend the heel is avoided, and silently into a wooden box, type of parking take coins.

  • From Meitetsu Gifu station near the bus stop 10 minutes walk from which, it took less than 10 minutes. Most people are not so on weekdays in late January afternoon, was able to slowly pray. Grounds overlooking the city or the mountains. Old and a solemn kind of said power spot shrine, meaning you can. Invigorating feel.
