テレビなどでよく紹介される神社なので、「うわさ」を信じて??行きました。JR唐津駅を降りて徒歩10分程度、渡船乗場には観光バスツアーの人もいて一杯でした。10分ほどのミニクルーズを楽しみ高島に上陸。お土産売場の方と猫?の熱心なお出迎えがあります。何やら宝くじが当たるよう、くじを入れる金色の布袋を買うように…とのこと。別に買わなくても神社に行けるので、まずはお参りに、道には猫足の目印があるので、迷い...

JR唐津駅から宝当桟橋へ行き(歩いて15-20分)、定期船「ニューたかしま」(片道210円)で島へいきます。JR唐津駅の観光案内所にフェリーの時刻表が貼ってあります。唐津城ながめながら10分くらいで島に到着。

フェリーから降りて「神社はこちら」の道しるべに従って歩いて5分くらいで宝当神社に到着。

Day3 第三站 宝當神社,需要從唐津城坐船過去,一種大船有時間表,另一種水上計程車不需要看時間,當然價格就不同,來到佐賀一定要來拜彩卷才會中獎,蠻靈驗喔!我們買的彩卷真的有中喔!雖然很小獎但幸運無價,小島上蠻多貓咪很可愛。

          Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu’s Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
