  • Great Shrine of Japanese. A lot of green. Peaceful!
  • I worship at the beginning of April. From the previous shrine once is known in all directions except in the Sagami country Ichinomiya in the Shinto shrine was tried. Seems to be also examined, for the first time visit this time to place the TV ratings up for that. Maybe the actors, actresses and shrine that may. Visit on the day of cherry blossoms in full bloom shrine, grounds and watching pictures. Nokyo-sho took. Nokyo-sho in nokyo-sho's design is a simple shrine, but 見映e is.

  • Sagami Kazuyuki country Palace, is to be expected! Stern and solemn, pomp and circumstance... come to the shrine before, and always will be overwhelmed. These prestigious shrine is unexpectedly taken cold attitude, but very who are the people involved. Very suitable for Ichinomiya!
