  • From the restaurant to the Pine city on the way, through the four pillars of the shrine, Okinawan hand through the side. The shrine in the snow, don't have a taste. On the way to visit Pine City, you can go in and join in.

  • Last year, this year here we decided to. Of prayers in the hustle and bustle of decent where there were no still serves around shops and stalls if you go in the last two days of morning 9 o'clock, many people, went on the morning of new year's day this year was lined up about 200 people. Gate 2, in both a formal entrance of Kana? Being large, and purify it of nawate as water entered from the side. Missed the much fuller last year. To become a good year because after I went here again this year (. &gt; Person <) is what the parking here is not speaking what? Is still the major gate parking convenient I guess?
