  • It started from shinbutsu shugo, and Niu, capital ratio, sell sister God Amaterasu, Kūkai donated Koyasan. Amano likened the takamagahara in the Shirasu Masako "kakure里", the village is Niu shrine is part of a world heritage site along with Koyasan. Precincts not existing deep involvement and Koyasan Buddhist building is listed national historic site. Minowabashi feminine graceful figure was also a brilliant Orange room main building and gate are also worth a visit.

  • Configure the pilgrimage sacred places in the Kii Mountains world heritage site, Niu shrine. Across the River from route 24, route 480, climbing to a side street. Basin located in high-altitude tunnel was relatively good and settlements. Out from the gate to cross arched bridge in the winter does not seem. We worship at the gate. And have great historical and find out later that the shame is idle. At the very good atmosphere also take a look at it again.

  • I went to the right navigation. It was pretty slim because it began climbing the mountain on route 109, trail. "Tourist buses to pass this way!. "And the story while I went up. Many road cyclists will go up. But pretty Eva or climb slope. It is a road along the mitani slope was registered on the World Heritage list. Arriving at the parking lot of the Niu shrine stopped bus. There is one lane road out of Amano tunnel route 480, from the road. If it passes on the way back I passed a car lot outside number. I think this is correct. But good things there is a Quaternary river views from route 109. There was no time to enjoy the views, and driving time I though.

  • Surprised that there is in the mountain village, this majestic shrine. Kasada station on JR Wakayama line out bus. However fewer buses, kasada station tram 1 hour each. Maybe no other tourist destinations and to protect the atmosphere, now just as buses.
