  • a small shrine for some local dignitaries I think. no english translation at the site but I guess to be allowed to be honoured here you must be someone special. only takes a couple of minutes to see.

  • 鎮守の森があり、境内も広い立派なお宮さんです。 住宅街の中にあるので、近隣の方々の憩の場としても親しまれているようですよ。動植物園や江津湖の近くなので、ゆっくり散策するのもいいかも。
  • 毎月、わんちゃんとお参りに感謝を伝えにいきます。 初詣でより年末の一年無事に過ごせたらことに感謝お参りも必ずいきまーす。 朝の九時前後は清掃員の方がいつも掃除をされていて、空気も澄んでいるので、とても良い気持ちになれます。 ありがとうございます!
