  • Time for a visit. What ideal because it was snowing, who was still sparse. Free sake Museum acquired the knowledge of sake barrels back get not at 300 yen per a small wooden plaque decorated with charm. Clean your garden. Staff car park, is recommended.

  • Paru sprigs of Sakaki "side shrine" is at the top of the gate is hung. Torii Gates line, left immediately for instructions. And relaxing environment at worshippers could visit. As other people have written in the renovation was a little sorry.

  •  I went to the shrine to Matsuo shrine dedicated to the Patron Saint. This day was done "Chinese shrine gate" in the sanctuary. Shamefully, lived in Kyoto, did not know this. "Word of the year" think of kanji, Kiyomizu-dera, made famous.... It was glamorous atmosphere is present also the chanter's and new year's.  Have a good new year. Globeflower, famous as the "God of wine", Shofu-en (shoufuuenn) 3 Garden is famous. However, in the garden watching the admission fee is required (500 yen).

  • Beautiful place to visit. If you're lucky you'll see families attending religious occasions. It was here that I got to see and learn just how amazingly similar our ceremonies and rituals are despite our religious differences. I think more people aught to experience this, and what better setting than right here?
  • Lovely shrine that's not crowded and just off the beaten track. Beautiful photo opportunities here.
  • I went Matsuo shrine on New Year's day. This shrine enshrines the God of Sake. Turtle is considerd the sacred messenger from deities.
  • Japanese Wine is good
  • A great place to visit, cool even in the summer, mostly unknown to tourists. Surrounded by nature is really fascinating.
