  • After their stay, staff was on a business trip to Tamatsukuri Onsen Hotel leaflet here, and I then got interested has done. Traveling so slowly, and not left the hotel at 6 in the morning, walking 10 minutes it took. Office is on the left side who first Torii was first realized the stones so early in the morning to buy the most problems, but, before the Office was unattended Office grant stone, so could get safely. There are cute bags, stones and stones come in and make a wish to write copy paper. Wrote about the Festival on the bag is peace of mind alone. Of course no one is slowly allowed to visit. The priest brought, on the way to work? Lively drumming? Become a shrine to start hitting, but left a deep impression. I had got grant a wish come is and then ask stone returned do not want to come here again, it seems. And make your wishes come true! Recommend the.

  • Had a chance two years ago to ask, so went to the temple. We help you pay 600 Yen at the door, behind the shrine we wish stone to stone and then back to the College. Tags I wrote even wrap them together. Temple at the type sticker yourself, what a blessing it is now, but I like a shrine.

  • Very nice shrine Shinto and quiet, with a somewhat different architecture if we look at the stairs that connect the main room with the rear building. There's even a dohjo or ring of sumo in the grounds of the sanctuary!

  • As part of the matchmaking power spot is a popular shrine. Granting wishes wish stones hit the steps, blessed with a true stones at the Office, said. True stone is so "rather than choosing your stone, stone has been selected, all different colors and shapes!
