  • I went to the shrine on new year's day. New year's day 2-hear information better prepared is waiting for 3 hours, at 11 in the morning before the place going nearly the put. He was anticlimactic, but leaves large matrix. Maybe just happened to be good luck. Size not larger than imagined and in good fun around. Around in souvenir stores, so watch it while eating is also recommended.

  • Kawasaki Daishi Temple from an early age has. In the year-end and new year holidays except a little-known temples, pond, Dove!, delicious meals, even and not get bored. Candy especially leading to the shrine and, and Dharma is, large when crackers is still attractive. It is great and delicious sweet, warm bun. Kawasaki Daishi from felt and often evil fortune. It was a condition of going with five colleagues and always draws the evil one. Here there recently, little has changed, here daikichi-I often see young people shouting. If the trend of the times. Do you depending on the season it! Once you try! Also, secret places, at least go for pilgrimage in Shikoku, can achieve within 10 meters Shikoku circuit is a base where there is. Pilgrim achievement if you orbit why while one by one! Also try! Location is somewhere on the left side, main gate. Try looking for it.

  • Founded in 1128, it is the headquarters of the Chizan sect of Shingon Buddhism. I visited the Kawasaki Daishi for the new year. An interesting alternative to other famous temples around Tokyo.
  • Street is mostly empty if visit on working days.
  • In 2016 / 8 / 20 received Typhoon approaching downpour, pilgrims, most do not. At Kawasaki Daishi Temple more than one. Today I did triple pilgrimage Kanto kasyo Numata, Numata of Tamagawa 八十八, pilgrimage and Kanto 36 fixed pilgrimage-pilgrimage 7. What is candy shops have keep average return of heavy rain along the approach road, take care dry a bunch of nokyo-Sho, I walked my aunt said and gave out a plastic bag. It made me really happy. Come back here again!
