  • It is famous for its white amulet, but now it is no longer a system that can be obtained if you go that day. If you go, the car is convenient and there is also a parking lot. If there is no event, I think i can stop it, but if you are worried about it, take the bus. There are not many numbers, and the express bus is also running, so I think that it is good to check the time firmly according to the day. There is a little climbing stairs from the bus stop, and those who are not able to live in the foot may be tired.

  • According to the company's biography, it is said that at the time of Emperor Kageyuki, Nippon Takeson stopped in this area on the way to the East March, on the way to the Usui Pass, and enshrined the two pillars of the gods of Iso-no-son and Iso-son. Go up the stone steps and follow the approach through the Three Torii, which combines three rare torii gates. Go through the main gate and head to the main shrine and the shrine. It is a beautiful and splendid color worship hall of the sculpture of detail. After the visit, you will receive power by touching the trunk of a cedar tree that is more than 800 years old, which is planted on the left and right of His Imperial Highness.
