  • And Kitano Tenman-gu shrine is without purpose, located near Portugal's sponge cake, I (Castella de Paul) to we go. What's it like came to know and fewer tourists than expected, was made a walk quietly. Were students and visitors, all looked calm and quiet. I think that foreign tourists, no popular or not only to the Japanese. Was an image so far away, so it is more crowded, quiet, very good. You want to go again.

  • Though is the study of God. Blessings. In all schools to take the exam, please ask your prayer. Called "Yukari plum, plums are sold. It is recommended so delicious! It is okay because there are a lot of parking space in a car. Restaurants in the neighborhood.
