Dense shrine childhood turf trees way clear as well as the dark day could now approach also beautifully maintained and shrine, also maintained by the parishioners. Middle Road is extremely narrow, and winding up in person for the first time is difficult. Fork in the road and many on the way, and none at all, signs of the shrine to the entrance on foot keifuku electric railway yase Miyake Yawata station (Yahata before Kurama line station and the mistake) as to get off, walk about 15 minutes in the direction of Mt.
