  • Strong see gate stone Deva, gomado fudo. Road covered with MOSS and okunoin, fewer people in the period, was a unique tranquil atmosphere. Wonders of ears, hundreds went to Kannon. Winter was buried there in the deciduous anxiety. Tall demon crack just down graded loose so far later, somehow paved road back. I would enjoy the walks and the season of spring and autumn.
