  • amazing place to visit well worth the trip if in the area
  • Night run 먁
  • I think in the Tsuruga tourist programmes. Torii of the 3 big bird in Japan is counted one of the Torii. Is one of the highlights is under construction by the end of 0/2017 (^ ^;) environment was lush green surroundings and relaxed atmosphere. The atmosphere is very nice also offers long life water basin here. Is gushing out from the mouth of the typical animal longevity in the turtle's statue. Seems to be quite a power spot, so please come try us during the visit (^ ^)

  • "Echizen country Ichinomiya" Tsuruga is a town located in the most southern is in the Echizen province. Ichinomiya in the town. Ninomiya is a mountain ridge Northwest of Echizen town (former ODA town) and hear the ritsuryo era living, interesting. Said kehi shrine was originally on the sea edge. Find over modern map ancient shorelines and kehi shrine sight into the Cove was. Want to recommend walks to explore and imagine the scene of that time.

  • Parking is difficult to understand. Because there is no sign at first sight cannot be found. Koi pond was messed up during the in is comfortable, but a little poor now. I think you can more cleanly while where you overlook the city or around the perimeter of the shrine and beautiful to did so. I think once place a little bit more to become famous.
