4.1
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Toba
Get in touch with your spiritual side at Shinmei Shrine, a shrine made up of two structures, which are recreations of the original buildings that once stood here. As you explore the site, find an oratory and a sanctum, which were created in the typical Shinto architectural style. Features include horizontal hornlike planks rising above the roof at both ends of the structure, as well as short logs, positioned at right angles, lining the ridge of the roof. At this shrine, women are granted a single wish by the presiding deity.

    Friends don't have car access is inconvenient, so in we went. Shrine itself was so solemn in a small shrine or not dignified. The women are lined up, were lining up to pray. Long-awaited so men, the good would come. Why do you feel a little embarrassed.

    Ishigami's shinmei shrine with a unique atmosphere. Ishigami's wish goes form there. It seems women wish for a good God. Image has been running on the narrow road there, private parking. Beautiful stone was sold in shops on the way, as a souvenir of the daughter I bought. Stone's snowy ⭐ mark was carved. Worth a visit is the bathroom. You want to go to so that it fulfills my wish incidentally and dedicate liquor, eggs next time.

    There are plenty of women prayed at the shrine will fulfill a woman's wish had been. It is recommended that time at the bus stop across the Street go by bus the number is small, so get off from the bus. Walking bus direction a little bit at the end up to the left and get in about 5 minutes.

    Ishigami's wishes of women always do and say. They sell souvenir for luck, with the shrine has a quirky sellers write their wishes on paper with the same thing, the mail said.
