  • Not much public transportation, but there are also buses from Hitachi Station Joban line. Kando called the gate, dark shades of Buddhist facilities not so were difficult to understand or come to the temple shrine Temple. Because it was a rainy evening, profound atmosphere was thick.

  • It is a rare feel Shinto shrine. 188 God enshrined as well as country, always otategami. Where the following are kamoshidashite serious atmosphere. Kabire shrine (kabirejinnguu) Karita Amaterasu (Amaterasu) Wani Wani Arts life (niniginomikoto) vertical speed, man lives (their only yahi to) when you visit okumiya is braced, and the shrine. I think here is exceptional. It is hard to explain, or rather echoes in the mind. Also come up to the top to try climbing please. I think it feels lighter. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes are required. Water for hydration is necessary. Because the parking lot is not large, the early arrival of recommended will be. I don't think the relatively empty during the week. I worship at the 5/2015.

  • 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.
  • Iwagami, to pray as God of Japan 188 pillars all can pray or that our great places in this neighborhood I'm I did not know. I dunno friends everyone is like wow reputation in other provinces. Hey Japan power spot is less scent precinct became the feudal Lord from generation to generation to visit the shrine during the Edo period Tokugawa mitsukuni power spot visited well of spiritual reputation on the Internet and the arts was also revered as the Mito clan kunimine prayer place in the 500-year-old Prefecture designated natural monument old "Hitachi fudoki ' to mountain of faith is described as a"Yoga--Li (kabire) peaks.

  • It is good. I think by feeling it was climbing the mountain, but very tired. From the power spot? ... I thought. Just a scenic Summit overlooking the only natural and blue skies, was invigorating. If you are touched red rocks behind a big rock there is a blessing and I was close to saying it's you hear no down was intact. Good ✨

  • It is a wilderness shrine Shinto remains. Izumo and ISE and a different atmosphere, cozy it is second to none. From the main shrine is recommended for trekking to the "kabire shrine" in the back. 560 yen (one way) is the local bus from Hitachi station. I think if you go by train or by bus from Tokyo to go good train high speed bus and return. Fantastic touch day (free) If you offer when you get off at high speed bus, iwagami's can be reached at 100 yen each way. Right or wrong.

  • Was a little before the quiet and solemn shrine, perfect power spot turned out to be. It is training for climb in lingshan mountain kabire. I'm not a hiking trail. 0 feel can feel human energy is winning now was a place where I feel the greatness of nature, but I'm just not sure. If you worship at the shrine, observe the manners. Their too near the tofu was annoying and had parked around the House were disturbed!
