  • Through the bamboo forest Arashiyama station, visited. Many people 9:30 early time that too much was still pray to, thanks. Organization seems to us tour after 10 p.m. by the time the crowd started. Early hours is recommended. Nokyo-Sho is not writing a stamp was free in our achievements

From Shijo-Omiya train tram arrived riding Arashiyama (^ ^) arrived in about 10 minutes walk from the station, arrived as soon as a lot of people did. Especially women's lot was / (^ o ^) / is always better so here is famous God of marriage to Clover ^ _ ^ 撫でました with their prayers and immediately visits the shrine, next to the unusual black "jinseki (kameishi)" \ (^ o ^) / said wishes come true this! those wishing a good match come in this Arashiyama area, please stop by here all is plenty of atmosphere and clean bamboo / (^ o ^) /

  • Sightseeing in Sagano also come here each are lining up. I came South from the Northern Sagano people flow is in the opposite direction from Arashiyama predominantly. Are not as wide as it was packed with tourists at home and abroad. Could not remember with humble old is that associated with the tale of Genji shrines. Near the road on both sides in the bamboo forest, ply a rickshaw.
