  • This shrine is incredible at what Kyoto City 900 number k, out of a modest 300 place? It is said that. At least in the top 50 will be taken for granted. It is so wonderful, worthy, good for the priest's shrine. Will fewer people go so maybe the edge of the city, little word of mouth???? Seasonal flowers are great, but also in other seasons alone DW is only the buildings of the highest class. Your neighborhood here, the temple is I is "good luck 厄払, victory garden, good match accomplishment amicably". Amulet good luck God deer clay bells and Mamoru come true, it was unique. In Kasuga Taisha Shrine of NARA's no. 1 minute instead of a guardian defend the shrine of God deer (しんろく) is a 1-to-sit opposite him is. Precinct ultra wide and it is really beautiful.

Autumn is beautiful around the shrine known as the Temple of flowers with Temple, Shobo-ji Temple. Km away from the town and oharano, because behind the mountains, mountains can be enjoyed.
