  • Sonoyatoishu might be saying is slightly pale, but this is a shrine to those who belong to the losers in the end about historical figures and foliage at the location and, yet, I didn't feel too much appeal except that part of the world heritage site. After Emperor Go-Daigo and Kusunoki masashige, Yoshitsune, benkei and Shizuka gozen, Hideyoshi, and all lose in the end just a set man. It seemed the kinpusen-JI was originally called yoshimizu Academy and was the highest monk. Bad of the Meiji era, after the Shinto and Buddhism separation Decree warning that later became the Emperor Go-Daigo and Kusunoki masashige shrine is. Admission fee is 400 Yen. Seowon in compound also a lot of treasures of the South morning is holding seems to be. Real, just seems to be enjoying seeing cherry blossom had perished in his lifetime Toyotomi Hideyoshi, a cherry before I fall foliage season is like. But I couldn't understand what would marriage blessings, from blessings of marriage or... consider this auspicious. Only views ○ 4.

  • The auspicious god of the gods, is on the hill, after the Golden Peak Hill temple followed along the road will arrive, the signboard plays very big, that world four words influence tumtum tumtum, perhaps the winter season is not right, nothing special. Past the birds, along the stone stage, next to the bed and breakfasts, climbing up some will go into the shrine, the first to discover the famous one, it means that one eye can see thousands of trees cherry, of course, in the winter visit, only to see the thousands of withered trees, depression cable all cool, but do not have a taste of the wind, into the temple before the shrine, occupied a small, There is nothing to look at, but it takes money to make a strike, and it doesn't take more than 5 minutes to stay. The last thing to look at is that it's full of elements, and it's interesting and interesting to have a piece of work here, and the most interesting thing about this shrine is here, as a whole, because it's a really smooth road, and next to the hottest street in Mount Wild (which is certainly not hot in winter), it's a must-see in the run-up to the cherry season.

  • Yoshitsune at the end of the 12th century, after the woes of benkei and Shizuka gozen, mid 14th century the desire of the Emperor Go-Daigo, a valuable Shinto shrine of Hideyoshi in the 16th century, thoughts of history can feel.
