  • "Poultry shrines", not "kogane shrine". From JR Gifu Station 15 minutes walk. Kim China bridges Street (Peace Avenue) is located. 渟 noshi life's main shrine (kaburanu and Princess Amaterasu), is said to have been founded 135 years in. Former shrine and burned in the nobi earthquake, Gifu air raid the shrine was rebuilt in 1988. Perhaps in reinforced concrete. Beautiful vermilion, but felt the distinctive character. Name suggests, luck, luck is a temple, so buying lottery tickets, try to visit.
