  • I came by climbing a mountain rather than a visit. It takes about two and a half hours from kiyotaki bus stop to the shrine at the top of the mountain. At the beginning of the climb, the climb continues single-mindedly. The stairs are just ... It is a climbing mountain rather than a visit. You can see kyoto city from some places.

  • I almost got the red seal of the shrine in Kyoto, but Atago Shrine was a place that I had wanted to go for a long time, but the place was also inconvenient place, and it was blocked by the snow, and it was not possible to go easily, but it became spring, it took a rest, and finally "Climbed it"
