  • This shrine Gaye Nabis who's asked by Headquarters and that God is parent-child relationships and the Izumo Taisha Shrine. We could pray in the evening I had to have, watch Miko Kagura dance just a little bit. Also accepts the lucky seed money, lottery winning prayer.

  • It is a shrine in mihonoseki 10 kilometers from the center of sakaiminato. Izumo Taisha Shrine to worship together and to excellent effect and increase the Izumo and access different is bad. Went with my bike in sakaiminato in the strength of confidence not to go by bus or taxi. Now if you want a narrower roadway so pretty dangerous may have been.... Miho Seki city proceed through the sea along a mountainous road and you will see the fastest. Do you feel like a small fishing village, is very calm flow of time.

  • Ebisu God headquarters in the port city (of one). It's rule over all three ear Tsu life caught up from the heavens and husband God to Karita. 2 pillars in the end ignore here was in the Ebisu God head who they say they are (see bi-Palace Chigi, and determine the sex God). Great was on the cover of the book of nokyo-sho. Is sea bream rice battles three ear Tsu Princess represents the wealth of it's mouth that clearance in the embroidery pattern, flying in waves. Value for it, all the way to visit a shrine is more than enough.

  • Port, blue stone-paved Street, and grilled squid! Lots of satisfaction here. I parked at the back of the Hall P at the precinct entrance is narrow because the port P is better. Are equipped with toilets.

  • It is a quiet, respectable shrine. I felt a calm feeling in the atmosphere in the mountains surrounded by fishing in front of and around the shrine. Feel the wind on the pavement in front of the Torii gate.
