  • Visit to ikaho, and buy first souvenir Qing Fang Tei yunohana bun. Ikaho, and several famous confectionery and delicious buns other wife says, but love here in my hot buns. From here, reach the ikaho stone steps in 2-3 minutes. Parked cars in the municipal parking lot P2 bottom, towards the ikaho shrine. In 2 hours parking is 500 yen. Ikaho stone steps, better two hours of drama to the scene of the crime or be guided on the travel show, is very famous. In the food and beverage outlets at the stairway entrance "Taka & Toshi" "gluttony talent stone-Chan", had posted a lot of pictures. Gasping for breath just 15 minutes steep stone steps to the ikaho shrine, rose dramatically. Lined with exhibition fairground, souvenir shops and restaurants along the way. Foot bath at intermediate points. Tourists are walking during the week so weren't too much. The ikaho shrine worship, resting in the shelter next to the shrine. Breeze into the sweaty skin. I wanted to ride in the ropeway if you have time, sorry. Return the back parking lot to ridicule the souvenir shop leisurely while. Put hands flowed a river stone steps, and good water temperature. Sorry I wanted to go to the hot springs.

  • Is a Shinto shrine located at the top of the stairs. Especially facilities that had not so at need step all the way are not interested may not be. So, I visited were setsubun 2/3 just had beans every 30 minutes. Not just the beans, was throwing a good stick and Gunma Bank tissue. And the timing is auspicious, so adjust the schedule if at all possible events are doing to go looks good.
