    A shrine there. Seen and there was no one in the rain, but rather many. Characteristic boils down to the stairs. Exceptional scenery, climbed for the first time.

    Vermilion main shrine was very beautiful! Is the front stairs are quite hard. Get up the rest in the middle and a rose at once because it was so. Not out of breath. Is thought nokyo-sho theater after the last phone, but self-assessment. Because I had heard only the stamp and was abandoned.

    We climbed the stairs. Excellent incidentally in a woman of ordinary strength in their 30s without break. No one was on a weekday afternoon, we visited the grounds gently. Beautiful carved in the red-painted DW. Come to the Dogo hot springs trail so close to Dogo Onsen station.

    百來階的樓梯不算累,但上面景色優美絕對值得,神社內部陳列很多藝術品也值得細細品味。

    Stairs are hard. What is steep and a decent no handrail. Lightly to stop by the heel or in the Act of suicide.

    A fine staircase so caution is required. But as a result, good views. Rather than write the nokyo-Sho, on paper.
