    A Shinto shrine; the inner sanctuary enshrines the shrine’s principal god, Sarutahiko Okami. Sarutahiko Okami is worshipped as a god of fortune who brings peace and happiness to all living creatures.

    Seki-juku in Kameyama City, Mie Prefecture was a post town serving as the 47th of the 53 Stations of the Tokaido in the Edo period (1603-1868). On the Old Tokaido Road a five-minute walk from JR Seki-juku Station, it is still preserved, and you can get the sense that you have slipped back in time to the Edo period. In the vicinity, there are many interesting places such as a museum introducing the history of Seki-juku and long-established stores, and it is filled with spots to take photographs. In addition, there are still over 200 machiya (traditional wooden townhouses) built from the end of the Edo period (1603-1868) to the Meiji period (1868-1912), and the area itself has been chosen as a Nationally-designated Important Traditional Architecture Preservation District and one of Japan's top 100 roads.

    This Chinese Restaurant is in an arcade in front of the Kintetsu Yunoyama Line's Kintetsu Yokkaichi Station. It's a four-minute walk away. One of their best dishes is the local Yokkaichi favorite known as tonteki or pork steak. A super filling 250-gram shoulder loin is baked in their aromatic, shoyu-based house sauce that's sweet and salty with plenty of garlic. Their hearty Butachahan Set meal featuring pork fried rice and a small bowl of ramen noodles with soy sauce broth comes recommended, as does their Curry Tenshin-han, a novel combination of fluffy egg over rice topped with curry sauce.
