  • 到那智大社會經過這青岸渡寺, 亦是在宣傳刊物或廣告裏介紹那智的真實絕景, 唔影多啲相就真係會對唔住自己。 
  • 2 night 3 day trip, is the first day of Shingu, 二日 eyes Nachi came round. 二日 first destination is the Nachi waterfall. In passing this far, will turn to the Kumano Sanzan in Kumano Nachi Taisha. And will inevitably drop if you go to the Kumano Nachi Taisha Shrine right next to seiganto-ji Temple in also. In other words, in other words, many are the places to visit while you're on the way I think. But still, turned Western (small) 33, no. 1, Temple, analogical architecture of the main building was rebuilt in 1590, Toyotomi Hideyoshi is or, or treasure box pagodas erected in Kamakura era has become the designated 1322, and there are three-storied pagoda. Too good to miss, and say where. Directions I walked the trail climbs from near the entrance of the Nachi waterfall. The Nachi shrine, not ago visiting the seigantoji Temple. Just saw a lift in a three-storied pagoda, but he was going aside from to the main building wrap, and prayed. And through the gate, went to Nachi Taisha Shrine.
