    Ibaraki Pref. Hitachinakashi Isozakichou 4607-2
    This Shinto shrine is on Prefectural Route 6 in Isozakicho, Hitachinaka City. Founded in 856, it honors the deities Onamuchi-no-Mikoto and Sukunabikona-no-Mikoto. It was moved to its present location on the order of Tokugawa Mitsukuni in 1702. The precincts have stone statues of turtles dedicated by big lottery winners, and many come to pray for luck with hitting the lottery. The grounds also have a large woodland area that will give you a look at the special qualities of coastal forests.

    大洗磯前神社と併せてお参りするのが良いと知ってからそうしています。 酒列磯前神社は不思議な木と鳥居の間から見える海が魅力的です。 毎年こどもの日には御朱印を頂いているのですが、2019年は酒列磯前神社と大洗磯前神社の御朱印を見開きで頂きました。 楽しかった茨城旅行の思い出になっています。

    Ibaraki Pref. Hitachinakashi Takeda 566-2
    "A historic structure located next to Numao Shrine a 10-minute walk from the ""Takedahoncho"" bus stop. Takeda Ward in Hitachinaka City is where the Kai Takeda clan, the clan of the famous samurai lord Takeda Shingen, is believed to have originated. This residence for the Takeda clan is said to have been built near the location of the home of the progenitor of the clan-Minamoto no Yoshikiyo who, along with his son Kiyomitsu, was banished to Kai Province and took up the name ""Takeda"" after the name of the local area. The current residence is a reconstruction built in the early shoin-zukuri style as would have been used by the Takeda clan in the Kamakura period when they were a powerful local family. Inside the residence are exhibits such as a Takeda family tree, mannequins dressed in samurai costumes, and period arms and armor."

Just a stone’s throw from Tokyo, Ibaraki is a coastal prefecture that has mastered juxtapositions, where old shrines meet new scientific discoveries and traditional gardens are frequented by the inventors of some of the newest technology. Head to Mito City's Kairakuen - one of Japan's Three Great Gardens - in spring to experience the cellestial blooming of fantastic cherry blossoms at the annual sakura festival.
