  • From oshu border and up to the North, so Sendai shrine is oshu Ichinomiya, Ichinomiya, made in the North. Two companies of Toshihiko wave shrine with here and your environment even if such changes in modern national banknotes inside, has been revered. Long long steep stairs to climb up this shiogama station on the JR from the shrine. (The car from another way installing.)

  • Shiogama shrine was visited by every time I come from when I was a kid in the Northeast. Climb down the stairs to pass it this time, rise in the car in the parking lot, was on the stairs on the way back. At any time and become a divine feeling.

  • Of stairs are very steep, but that also visits there, so the recommended there. The views from the Hill at the new year is very crowded, but very good. I think you should wait 30 minutes or so every year, when the new main left bays allowing for nokyo-sho because began the temple at first.

  • Shiogama Shrine stands atop a massive staircase, towering 202 steps above the city below. Along this staircase is a small forest, so beautiful and natural that it is hard to believe you were stepping on city pavement a few seconds earlier. Atop the staircase is one of the symbols of this little coastal town, the main gate to Shiogama Shrine. Within the shrine area itself you'll find four separate prayer areas in three separate shrine sections with several locations where you can buy charms, fortunes, and even postcards. As you explore the grounds around the shrine, you'll also fine one of the best views of Shiogama overlooking the shrine garden, which is beautiful in its own right. Further from the shrine and behind a big harpoon gun, a white building houses a small maritime museum. A little further down and to the left, you'll find a field of cherry trees, perfect for hanami season. Many of the trees are of the species Shiogama-Zakura, a special sakura tree made famous by the 10 petal double blossoms that appear on its branches. Because of these fantastic trees being planted all over the grounds, spring is a big time for tourists to Shiogama shrine, but the grounds are gorgeous any time of the year. If you're a fan of Japanese shrines or gardens, you should definitely make a point of seeing Shiogama Shrine.
