  • Like a long corridor, and the Japan grounds like the splendid shrine! Some stone stairs are the remains of the old building, steps apart are the shortness of breath sometimes. Environmentalists. Degrees (° ́Д ' °) degrees. On a rainy day and careful, because the rain is dangerous.

  • I went to nokyo-sho. Seen only in the kibitsu shrine building is unusual,, seems to be known also as kibitsu build.

  • 沿途寧靜,清幽,神社前方的一整排松樹先淨化了能量。 吉備津神社像是鄉間守護神這樣,週邊的親子會帶小孩來舉辦一種儀式,滿特別的; 進到神社內部後也感覺神采奕奕,隨興抽了籤,內容貼切的嚇人。PS.連閒晃的貓咪也親人、隨地就曬太陽,正殿旁的銀杏樹很有味道。

  • Kibitsu Jinja is one of the oldest shrines in western Japan. The main building is a massive traditional thatched roof. Well worth half an hour of your time.
  • I liked the long corridor. The shrine of 鳴釜 are bubbling and simmering, burns a gas fire was impressive. That's exactly what "kibitsu cauldron" in tales of the world itself. It is a shrine even solemn "kibitsu concrete" lined roof honden and haiden of the two. A little souvenir of the shrine before Let's rice go.
