    I like history, so I imagine that during the middle ages in the battlefield, and the staff were very helpful. To think I was now peaceful, such as the chinoike, but once here was a battlefield where there. Traffic was in a friend's car, bus, go is a place so take a little time. Seto Inland Sea is splendid. I dare throw roof tiles. It was interesting as a tourist.
