  • A small but nice shrine hidden in the residential district.
  • It is not a large shrine, but there is a very splendid ryujin tree. Aobaak (Owl) lives... And if you're looking up at things... (* ' ω ' *) ♪ I quietly to the height of the Hualana'i without looking from the backside. There are six kinds of red seal, 9:00 to 16:30. The Red Seal book is also wonderful. The free parking lot is distributed by the side of the precincts and it is a few ants (including temporary).
