  • I think same Katsuyama Eiheiji Temple is famous hiraizumi Temple history, great. 6000-Bou said, during the height of hiraizumi Temple priest 6千 who was. Tojinbo throw themselves at one of them and became a famous name that tojinbo is heard. Taishi has been built as a base for the Hakusan faith also dōgen's Eiheiji faith had been heard.

  • Indescribable solemn atmosphere, such as changing air pass through the gate and fills the air. Visited on Sunday, but tourists could travel less and quiet. Has a very old history, was surprised at the thriving as a religious city at that time. MOSS also nice and clean.

  • Is a Shinto shrine has a history of 1300 years. Bus want to go because it was close to the bus stop. Free parking is also pretty close to. Parked the car at the parking lot nearest the head office until 10 minutes from Sannomiya back until 係rimashita another 10 minutes. 3-宮手 ago the tombstone of Kusunoki masashige. Pass through the gate in the cedar forest, a medieval feel peace of mind I couldn't say.

  • 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.
