    I went the famous "Devil Bill". About 30 years ago, have brought to the Iwate from friends since the second time. I had no idea at the time what a "Devil Bill", and. Today for the first time, its origins and learned where the Bills. (Volunteers? ) Guide, I thank you. That joy, we reformed the origin of the name 'Iwate', and the demon "Sansa dance" is. Inspiring! The shrine itself is not too great. Next to the shrine in front to two large rocks. Behind the somewhat smallish rock one. So three stone shrine that is. Overlook the careful one in the back. Bill the demon is no traces in the rock itself, in the form of Bill Moss said "gathers" seems to be. So the shape is different little by little each year? Guide it to lost form before the (may have influence, to cut down the branches of the trees before, too much per day, MOSS is worse-, and said. ) With next year just to know what it looks like not. This shrine is located on the main street (Temple Street) off in the back. I think, there is a sign, so I immediately. A little lost when I didn't lose to go from the Morioka area's head, Hou Temple-T'ang. Please be careful to go down the same road. No tourists at all, shrine and the origin of the name of Iwate Prefecture and boulders almost a monopoly, will I was impressed! (Next to the child was playing normally but it was good. )

    Signs through the back roads of the great temples on and arrives at the small shrine. Only there are three boulders and small shrine. However, this Boulder became the origin of the name of Iwate Prefecture. Hold it promises not a bad thing to rock the Bills. Looking for Bill on the rocks again, but I don't know.

    I had brought to the friend who lived in Morioka. Overflowing with tourists the frog-sick tourist, was new to me. Whatever historical or gratuitous place is quaint good in it, it's nice.

    Here are the origin of the name of Iwate Prefecture. Morioka Festival "Sansa dance" is Miss with this place Sansa's dance begins. Charm there is too much explanations in English. Never it is not city of heavy metal and death metal. There was parking.

    It was in the temple with a quiet residential area. It is no parking there, narrow road guide sign. Three rock is so big, it was mysterious ✨

    對岩手縣十分重要的一個神社 因為印在巨石上的惡鬼手印而聞名 不過這座神社似乎無人常駐管理 有好多問題都找不到工作人員詢問 很可惜
