  • Second, and calm, is here. There are such large so-called shrine, even though in the cities is a surprise. Visitors who long was on Sunday. It is amazing to the size of the Koi pond. I feel and not at all by feeding carps that just had that feed it too much and can give visitors. And walk along the River to the entrance station so there are duck, also becomes a feast for the eyes.

  •  Mishima dropped in front of Izu peninsula.  After Sima croquette only specialty, headed out to the Mishima Taisha Shrine. Respectable Torii Gates line and entered the temple. Environment, looking at some gates and buildings such as head to the main shrine.  There was a respectable way to kinmokusei/sweet gardenia trees. Main shrine was also good. It seems I'm size is the largest as well as the Izumo Taisha. And the shape of the roof were characteristic.  I'm becoming shaped like open books, from the front, not looking up from the slightly angled side and roof. It was a formality and stately feel, truly seems to be Izu country Ichinomiya shrine.
