  • By Kaya hakonegasaki STN. JR, miyayama station at 6-7 minutes walk. Samukawa shrine is since ancient times is left Wu River and indicated was apparently is from Edo Castle, unluckiness in all directions except the aside i.e., the direction of bringing faith as God. Because it was the day of the vernal equinox, was he come a bunch of people. On the day of the vernal equinox and autumnal Equinox, on the top of Mt. Fuji is also enshrined in place on the summer solstice, when the sun sets Oyama is mysterious. In addition, koibumi fortune, popular, as is there were a lot of young women.

  • Not all directions except that I noticed so I went. A little walk from the train station. But it is no less obvious. The shrine is that much bigger than! The Emperor planted and you can see the venerable. Main hall is quite large, it was good. Sort of??? Also want to wear that as a shrine.

  • Good luck seems to be about 1,600 years ago, the venerable shrine. Sagami country Ichinomiya in the large shrine. On worship, I visited 30-40 worshippers congratulation were received. Description of the priest, here it's orientation and all directions except the only guardian throughout and were fitted with orientation team. And also large wedding was installed nearby.

  • Great Shrine of Japanese. A lot of green. Peaceful!
  • Karita is the God of the old life (Somchai hikonomicoto) and samukawa compared her life (Somchai hymenomicoto) 2 pillar samukawa ratio. Interviewed his priest-like, 2 pillars of this God is God pioneered the Kanto is enshrined as it is. And because it is like a total deus ex machina of the Kanto in the Kanto on your daily uneventful spend I realize we pray and hope you'll tell your feelings of gratitude. Environment is very splendid shrine, where all the sweep was able to visit all of you has been purged, that post is very worthy, so good. I felt the dignity has spacious, DW and Office are all near the shrine and by an order of magnitude, and solemn word that is not cleared up. Kanto residents outside of your trips near you to please also come visit us. That day I honestly happy still to be in itself.

  • While I lived in Kanagawa, good visit we received. It is a God in all directions except to represent Kanagawa. It is also a place to worship and be healed so.

  • It is the Sagami country Ichinomiya. From the main hall until Nice and spacious. 2 years is their third visit on this day on Sunday kabukichō time, there had come lots of parents and children. Hiratsuka Hachiman 753 is quite crowded, but did not lose also.
