  • Good riddance I went for the first time. Have no such reservations, exorcism is done daily routine a few times, so contact prior to table form so provided, such as your name and then at money payment application. In 753, was really made my day and family there were plenty. Chrysanthemum exhibition was done. Surprised at the public phone near the entrance to a goldfish tank. Candy and drank sweet was surprised and I sold, but it was cold so I went back.

  • Locally known as your master, is familiar. Your Idol is the Saint Kobo Daishi Kukai. Shrine of professed Naritasan shinshoji Temple and shrine annually enters top 3-Daishi as famous. To hear a knock of candy's thrilled. While Dharma line, while on my way home specialty kuzumochi wanted to the main hall. Take off your shoes, you can visit in the immediate vicinity. Will include five-story pagoda and vine pond on the grounds, but your time is next to Chinese garden Shen Xiu Park (shinnshuuenn) to come.

  • 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.
