  • On the bus is 10 minutes ' walk from Nagoya Station, 15 minutes. JR is a bus loading zone to 12 or 13. I worshipped at Japanese to personally be enshrined next to the Dragon shrine. Pebble at the entrance is a must.

  • Once again, we had first to visit. Tailwind blowing back in from the Torii to the shrine Hill, very good, I was happy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It is a star 100. Karita too, or Dragon-like, I don't know, but the spirit was too, there were strange visitors. It is a surprising 😨.
