    O-Bon holidays I visited. This is registered on the World Heritage list. About 20 minutes from the City Center by foot. No admission fee is required. There were a lot of participants of the local tourist. School is a historic structure, so well worth a visit. Trolley seems to stop in front of the gate. Anyone who knows the character and the word should use.
