  • After their stay in the hot springs, Japan chicken and deer park, walked up to the sanctuary. Because it was snowing was so slippery underfoot. Companies are scattered in Cedar Grove, gave a solemn feeling. Miss morning had sacred tree and life-size wooden horses and designated 10th column to see the shrine on a whirlwind tour around the precinct. So I checked the floating leg of the Torii gate at the entrance. It was a place in good weather to walk slowly.

  • Snow has settled slightly early in the morning, we visited at first. Omotesando is lined with stores, and hot springs accommodation in front of the shrine, I was surprised. Are wrapped in silence, raise your donation is usually no iota of faith is, pray has been. It was a nice experience.
