  • This is the northernmost shrine in Japan, on the way to jr Fire Station on foot to Chichi. It takes a walktoise to get to the top. When we went there were no ones, very comfortable, only a self-made soldier was worshipping and feeling his godfulness.

  • Go straight from the north breakwater, and beyond the traffic light, beyond the first intersection, climb to the left at the end and you will reach the parking lot in the precincts. We can't stop a large number of people during construction. I was also doing the seal.
