  • Located conveniently on the edge of the park, this shrine is a hot spot for food stalls come festival time, especially during Sansa Aug. 1-4. The character at the entrance changes outfits with seasons/events so it is fun to revisit. There is also an Olaf Daruma near the charms/omamori. There is a toilet inside as well, though it feels like trespassing to get to it.
  • The nanbu clan ebessan. Outside of the upper building of the temple which enshrines a Kabuto rock boulders. Worth a look is.

  • Eboshi rock is big roll at any moment. It might be an interesting place stop light.
