  • Shinto holy place 71 Hyogo No.6 Nagata Shrine had wheel I had. Walk 10 min see the road as we initiate and from Kobe station. It seems since the God effort Empress has a history of more than 1,800 years, along with Hirota shrine, Shinto shrine Ikuta Jinja. His shrine is revered as a God to protect industries, Chamber of Commerce and industry "it's mainly Okami" enshrines and the locals have nicknamed Mr. Osada. There was a lot of large camphor tree. Cheer up, as usual!

  • Nagata shrine, devastated by the great Hanshin-Awaji earthquake with Ikuta shrine is now fully restored. It is a Torii and dedicated the present ones are volunteers who rebuilt at his own expense, the said. You can see the monument remains on the approach to the broken gate of the original remains. That struck much of the shaking or recalling an important historic site.
