  • Kitsugawa City, Okada duck shrine → Fushimi-ku, Kuga shrine → Coco and it seems to have been seated. It is interesting to be able to draw an ancient duck's moving path. The forest is still around the shrine, but it is a prohibition area. It might be a remnant called "Omiya no Mori" before. This shrine is based on the name of Omiya.
