  • Go up the stairs and there are shrines. Quite a number of columns. But, just look up the stairs, Wow! I and I. Caution is required when you descend the stairs are wet and glide in.

  • Dogo Onsen, a morning walk in the continued straight stairs from Dogo Onsen station you can see. It is a nice decoration of the cloister. Shrine is a graceful figure in Yawata. Candy is a lot of important cultural assets, so there. Cute Pug-ugly on the roof of the corridor's South Gate.

  • ISA was Yamaguchi, Akira prints go want to see Seiji shrine. Main red hachimangu shrine was a respectable building designated nationally. Yawata building it have only three cases in the whole country. 135 stairs before you reach the main shrine is a little tight.
