    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.

    Hardly any tourists here. This is definitely a shrine for the locals for weddings, funerals, child services and blessing cars. No one bats an eye as the priest waves his wand over a new car to ensure...

    Mie Pref. Kuwanashi Tadochoutado 1681
    A Shinto shrine located a 10 minute drive from the Kuwanahigashi Interchange whose history dates back over 1,500 years. The shrine's origins are believed to lie in the building of a shrine here by Emperor Yuryaku in the latter half of the fifth century. The deity enshrined in the main shrine is Amatsuhikone no Mikoto, the son of Sume Omikami. The shrine was destroyed in a wartime fire in 1572. After being rebuilt in the Edo period, the shrine experienced such a revival in popularity, it was said that if one were going to visit the famous Ise Jingu shrine, one must also visit this one. The Tado Festival, held in May, attracts many visitors who come to watch an event in which gallant men ride horse up a steep, two meter near vertical precipice; the number and the order in which riders surmount the precipice foretells how good the harvest will be that year.

    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).

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.

It has been said that the beginning was when a monk missionary of Todaiji Temple in Nara enshrined the Jizo Bosatsu here in order to save people from a smallpox epidemic which has broken out in several regions. The main hall, the bell tower and Aizendo hall have been designated as National Important Cultural Properties.

    This campground is a place full of nature that is located at the entrance to Mt. Ryugatake, one of the Suzuka Seven Mountains. The draw is the facilities that utilize the nature of Suzuka Quasi-National Park as is, and the promenade in particular that overlooks a waterfall flowing in Uga Valley looks different depending on the season. In addition, you can play in the clear Uga River or barbecue. Besides pitching a tent on the river bed and staying the night, there are also accommodation facilities such as bungalows and Ryugatake Hutte in the reconstructed former Ishigure Elementary School building. This campground can be enjoyed by many people, from those who have never camped before, to families and those using hired limousine taxis to Ryugatake.
