  • My favorite secret place, so less touristy do not want is mysterious and increases the feeling of reverence for nature. Visit the MOSS occurs season!

  • Where the one side covered with MOSS called Moss Temple is very beautiful. Echizen railway Katsuyama station 15 minutes by bus and can be reached in about 20 minutes. From spring until the fall in tourism. Air you can enjoy naturally delicious. In a nearby noodle shop near is a delicious choice. In addition, near the entrance to the small but was built the Museum of the history of hiraizumi Temple. You sounded pretty good. It is partly a good slow walk.

  • For the moss lovers, this shrine can't be missed. Personally, I loved it, it's among the 10 best religious places I have ever visited and surprisingly, it's quiet and relaxing... I wonder even why it's free, maybe because this place is really about the gods?
  • It is a beautiful Moss shrine. It is one of the 3 Baba's shrine. Pond taicho met shirayama Hime Okami is a power spot. Refreshed we don't and feel hot. Temple is so very slowly.

  • From Katsuyama station then went on foot from Sannomiya to mahoroba, bicycle rental. Until the mahoroba slope from below mabashi is very steep, even though power-assisted electric rather tired. Recommended bus or taxi is not their strength. Mahoroba is spacious climbing destination.

  • It is Hakusan shrine he once declined due to riot, but once was priest of 6,000 (8,000 and are according to wikipedia!). Originally was 'the temple', but was renamed "shrine" and due to riot. An enthusiast of the faith at the time. Wells is said to come out of tojinbo is a descended goddess in the premises and Mitarai pond (mitaraiike) and the rice bran and Hakusan Sanja likened the covered gate, where sacred places are everywhere. Also, moss grows all over the place and, coupled with a quiet environment, mystical feelings quietly see. Stamps AR apps, wifi is excellent. Suggest a location does not want to be overrun, but want everyone to know that.
