  • Spring, asked in a long time! I think the first impression impressive shrine. So into the mountain from the city for a while around tend to curve not speed. But is a power spot you want go. Near the tofu was fried tofu Donuts are bought! Really delicious, freshly fried.

  • 1/25 (Wednesday) iwagami's snow we visited. Iwagami's web page, within the poster was "Please refrain from climbing in the snow," and "keep out". It is ordinary people [banned from sliding in the snow] and receive. Why climbing irons bring you so we climb cult. Going down to priest Kankan is. Why? "And to enter in the snow, snow footprint that remains on the ice until what time is very dangerous. In the mountains, you have to plow? ' Does not enter snow no billboards and posters, publicity that way. If proper public relations, all public relations follow. To do good PR and is all hell breaks loose in iriyama time.

  • Iwagami's ancient holy places of worship were said to be wanting to go from the previous, I worship at the cold winter season. Clean air environment is, well, you said the presence of the sacred scent nice and respectable gate, many Buddhist presence in the shrine, was by gods and Buddha mixture with a good feeling. Without knowing the story standing pillar of light in Japan what view of the Earth from outer space, you look after your Rocky Mountain was Chiaki Mukai, Apollo 14 Astronaut Edgar Mitchell's visit Somewhat aimlessly walk to the top of your Rocky Mountain (Mt. Bire) familiar with your Rocky Mountain repeat care bed, but "there is the only pillar of light!" like I heard talking to acquaintances. The pillar of light? Thought and I think it's going to work as small Ishizuka, and local people told me "the only pillar of light this is the place!" small Ishizuka was carefully enshrined by the locals and visitors. I hope your Rocky Mountain top road from iwagami's, said at the Summit, a truly magical place.

  • We visited this place during hatsumode period, so it was a bit crowded. Still, the place is gorgeous, nested among old Japanese style houses and tall trees. There are different shrines to visit and worship. The main temple seems to be quite popular.
  • It's atmosphere is very mysterious. The air was so clear and some trees have myth. It is also said that here is one of the oldest shrine in Japan. There're also beautiful green moss. Backyard from the shrine, there are path which leads to top of the mountain.
  • Turn signal right stuck with a route from the Joban Expressway, Hitachi Central interchange, along the No. 2 car in about 10 minutes, the third will arrive in the parking lot. 1 garage and then wandered off to go there. Wait until the cars too much volume is a shrine to the nearest car park is no. 1 because if timing is not free. Not so crowded because you don't know whether or not there are no spaces and unique from start no. 2 parking in the parking lot and in some cases early. Walking, can be reached in a few minutes. No. 1 parking toilets Park and shrine grounds 2 months away. Brightened in the shrine grounds is easy-to-use. Iwagami company only, not go to the shrine kabire, our rocky mountain peaks are the home page → "his Rock" rock shrine map → admission principles referring to by go! Borrow a cane rental near the Office, so to go and you will be helped. Recommended to be taken wearing climbing shoes. Because the road flat had bare at the base of steep, log bridges, trees and rock. Hope you can muddy water mountains even if it rains on the day so you may include a change of clothes taken just in case. Hard it is to enter so trap I was good to go to the Summit, I think is how changes in physical fitness of the individual, including the best thing I could have

  • As wearing a beret and about mossy guardian dog's head, so it's quite cute. Parking lot shrine's Torii aside narrow grounds, will be filled soon. Perhaps it was the season of the 753 may have arrived in 7:00, was already parked half. Staying away from the parking lot. It is mandatory to wear if you go up to the top, comfortable clothes and shoes. Beside the Office, staff there. It is recommended that we have. Give me kukurimashita high and I'm fine, but the dangerous feet in going down the mountain and along the way, friendly gentleman had his wand. It was very helpful.
