One of the treasures of the shrine is a Yayoi period dōtaku bronze bell, possibly recovered from a burial mound in the area.

  • Off Highway 151, the Toga shrine-shrine. It was a tranquil atmosphere. Through the Torii to the shrine. It was a figure and did not adorn. I guess this square people when events are held at.

  • Meet at the annual Festival in may, in the walk way (coffee shop) visited the Cafe after. To run horse riding archery range is approx. 200 m, was like shooting an arrow in the old days, but in recent years stands up to its near House smaller in width. Also, shooting an arrow to the guys and just running, riding and shooting arrows in recent years that caused the trouble, so it seems. That tradition is important, but is a pity. But on that day together in opening many leaves.

  • This "pebble" is great. Pass through the gate and different atmosphere. It is without a doubt still "Ichinomiya".
