  • It is a fortress country Ichinomiya. A lot of important cultural assets, many lined with very large environment. Now pray Kawai shrine (God's beautiful) and aioi's environment (marriage) fun so I went with a girl friend. "Shuzo shrine was done in 7 years of Emperor sujin (90 BC)" the record remains, so I've is enshrined in this area since ancient times. It is said shimogamo shrine located downstream of the Kamo River. There was a lively, and used books on the environment. Amulet is very summer. Gen Mamoru denim fabric and crepe article Ehime Mamoru. When going online, with no "it if you buy it-..." and I chose the cute ones.

  • 我是在下雪的時候剛好來到下鴨神社,在雪中看到神社建築別有風貌,這裡也是京都有名婚禮式神社之一。穿過森林走道鄰近河合神社也可感受自然之美。看見河合神社寫著參拜禱詞,告訴參拜者不只祈求個人美貌,也要祈求皇室成員健康、世界和平,心中湧起特別感受,這也是一種潛移默化的教化,怎可不慎?
