  • I was surprised, was expected until the bride doll and ichimatsu dolls and dancing dolls per, but did you know that there is a lot of dolls, porcelain Chinese Zodiac and seven lucky gods, the frog, daruma ordered in large quantities. Also at the back was South-East Asia and Africa? of masks and surprisingly clean. Precincts are smaller all the way around the photos you will find very 10 minutes in 20-30 minutes. People have taken the dolls with a professional camera. With fewer people think an eerie feeling. 4

  • It is good to enjoy the difference of each shrine has many additional features. Awashima shrine is never scale is not big but standing doll Saint who is an indescribable feeling that is strange. Best place to shop just in front of the gate can be delicious, a little drive, I thought.

  • Every year in March, and will be aired on the national broadcasting television 3/3 nights. Road to the shrine will eat seafood. There is a shop. Clam and conch two can eat 600 yen. It is highly recommended.

  • Very creepy with all the dolls! It's free, so if you're nearby just walk around it for a little while.
  • Unique shrine with hundreds of small dolls.
  • The shrine, has proven that the "Purification" of Shinto in USJ one can't totally curse? I think wrong usage of the word curse at the attraction, but no fear of God. Is a shame for the shrine world like trample on people's minds I guess. Shrine prayer purification, 753, amulets apotropaic and so on? Become a freak show's curse, cursed forever for those who were dedicated to the puppet's blessings rather than further woe is I. It is sorry people puppet Memorial was dedicated in earnest. KOAK. et al involved no shrine and unpleasant feelings.. would like to increase that. Said I shouldn't go to Barai, purified the temple, defiling the impure scourge but no time for fun. No good is going to happen.

  • It is the worst case in USJ dolls lent support. And lend a doll sent from around the country to ask alms as a doll would mean? To explain properly.
