  • This is where when visited at the seminar in Mie Prefecture was taken to the local people. It's great place for I love horses. Increase or steep slope used at horse and climbed this Hill really? So it seems was the Hill. Dwells with magical powers, including to such location.

  • Look into the left hand small buildings (temples) and adorable white horse (the Thoroughbred). I'll put a donation, then cut carrots 1 dish. The kids were excited. From there, walk along the entrance path about 5-10 minutes and mystic waterfall next to the main building. Nice atmosphere in a very venerable shrine.

  • From GW, a dangerous horse ritual Festival is done. Delicious ice cream in a strange form of a souvenir shop before the shrine.

  • Raised, also deeply troubling to learn the brutal acts against the horse horse ritual. Made a wall in order to call the tourists climb the Hill in the old days it was just thrilling to know. Imagine the fear of horses. Festive horse died, suffering from it is strange. Back to the events just used to go up a hill.
