  • To learn about the history of the two countries, from a temple that should be called the face of the city. There are many monuments and stone monuments to the victims of the Edo fire that occurred during the Edo period. The stone monument related to the sumo wrestling called Rikizuka is also symbolic. And the famous tomb of "Rat Kojirokichi". Most of the purposes of worshippers are probably here. The precincts, which also have monuments to animals and birds, are a must see.

  • Speaking of both countries, the Kokugikan and The Palace of The National Institute came to mind soon, but i went there for the first time. First of all, i was surprised at the big gate, and then i went on to see a stone monument, a tower, a lot of explanatory boards, and a modern building, and went to the tomb part on the south side of the city core. I saw a parent and child who shaved a stone for shaving beside the grave of a famous rat boy and put the powder in a ziplock. In addition, there is a pet mausoleum, and it is relaxed by several cats who are eating food around it. Come and explore the two countries.
