  • Is the guardian deity of Kashima's famous football. Met before the war shrine and is so high in large mesh-shrine Ise Jingu Shrine, Katori Jingu Shrine Kashima Jingu Shrine 3宮 only. Walk of Torii shrine only go away but continues to precincts in the back. We recommend walking Mitarai pond or keys if you have time. Dining is sacred trees feel the ancient road. However, to Mitarai pond is on a slope, is lack of exercise people back is inevitable that leg to be full.
