  • The shrine itself, almost no foreign tourists. It is good to pray themselves quietly, praying for patriotism. 300 yen on the exit of station or anyone else writes about Sakamoto ryōma and Nakaoka shintarō Tomb tourist are restricted by pass and the back are kinda lonely form of bypass. Because the slope is steep in a kimono and seems to need is a little determination. Ryoma is pleased but I am sure

  • It is a very well known sacred mountain shrine. Patriots in the late Tokugawa period and enshrined on a quiet hillside slopes are asleep, Sakamoto ryōma, Nakaoka Shintaro. I think I should visit only quietly and solemnly. Feet but not so good (scree there are stone stairs), so should avoid high-heeled shoes are good. Hope is a chance for me to go hard to go and really good. Unless people are buried here, Japan now did not think and feel new.

  • Ryoma Sakamoto that he adored, so come here every year. 11.15 Dragon horse Festival, another year off work, we have to attend. Spirit shrine, so the efforts to Japan are enshrined. When going in front of the main tenses and himself. There is a large stone monument "road restoration" and described the slope up to the shrine is a Shinto shrine located on the Hill of. This monument on this Hill like, before the killing, the, such as and, hesitate to blurt out things that I will. Also cut climbing up the Hill to the grave of Sakamoto ryōma, Nakaoka Shintaro must climb further. Is the Dragon horse, and Shintaro's of grave overlooks the city of Kyoto. There is space and vending machine and bench goes a bit sideways, slowly. Climb further and late Tokugawa loyalist memorial monument is one at a time, and lined. Even they, now our life is naturally and I think I will no longer help not conforming to the hand.

  • 是非行って下さい。夏場は虫除けスプレーが必要かも。
  • Gokoku shrine is in dedication to the national crisis since Perry Perry, died in the country for remembrance. Therefore, visited the shrine in different parts of Japan Yasukuni Jinja in Tokyo, most famous shokonsha should contain the number of souls who died in the invasion, as well as the Patriots of the Tokugawa shogunate, but live in the district but that calm he send a sense of gratitude in remembrance, as well as by Memorial world historical age of imperialism good white domination and exploitation, founders of our country desperately resisted colonization to stave off the, died. Enjoying life right now, the Japanese are rich, happy to be alive even these so influenced by the feats of it's spooky, entering at the child fare, just don't desecrate remembrance I wonder? You should visit here, sincerely, passed expanding showed deep condolences. Thoughts of various souls instead of ryoma Sakamoto just for our descendants to live, dead, to, to be understood that it is a sacred place of prayer

  • I went in the fall of 2014. We dropped in at Kiyomizu Temple in return. The location is slept many greats such as Takayoshi Kido (kogoro Katsura) and Sakamoto ryoma. Dark day for history like it was moving, but the little 薄気味悪katta. But I want to go again.
