  • Yahiko shrine's car from the direction of the infield and 30 minutes. You can go with Yahiko, road and Highway 402, and. Near Yahiko station and train. Shrine in Niigata Prefecture, close to the museums and the Onsen. With brothers and Takaya shrine located in Sapporo, I went to Sapporo. Being paved with cobble-stoned and less slippery. It is easy to climb and 634 m to climbing, using rope way Yahiko mountain climb from Yahiko shrine can be. Shrine year 31, in addition to numerous events. Guide to come and gone to the shrine each year since and often is called, go on a diet. Konjac Oden in the home shrine to shopping smarted from the taste and is very tasty.
