    Long walk along the entrance path with Yahiko mountain ropeway free shuttle bus can be reached. As well as shrines, quaint buildings, as well as deer can be seen. Are comfortable with negative ions.

    When I went to Niigata was allowed to shelter. Can touch the air because it was the visit from the morning, all day, was in the invigorating feeling that day. Once in a while going from morning to the shrine visits are going from this morning that day feeling good can easily spend a day.

    Shrine hall of worship behind Yahiko mountain was founded. God told this area agriculture, fishery, and sake Festival, advertised nationally as the power spot in recent years, China. May need to use the ropeway from the foot of the mountain, such as Yahiko mountain tops to the inner sanctuary to visited the urge to leave.
