  • 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!
