  • Walk the boardwalk along the river Amano iwato shrine from around 10 minutes. When hidden iwato goddess 8 million God God discuss cave were conducted. Pray for people close to the company, and piling up pebbles at the foot needs attention. Bridges said the power spot on the way here where I didn't feel anything.
