I thought this was a nice stop away from the hustle and bustle of a city. The view was good - especially during cherry blossom time. We received a personal from a monk around the residence area which...

長い長い階段と坂道の先にさらに階段が続いて、これで御本殿にたどり着くと本当に御利益がありそうです。こちらは権現様のお宮ですから、仏教寺院のような神社のような不思議な性格ですが、これは例えば東京の高尾山みたいな感じと思われれば良いかも知れません。
Reviewed:2020/02/24 嘘のような本当の話!厄除け直後から、ご利益を頂いております。
還暦の厄除け祈願に参拝しましたが、ご祈祷頂く際に2つのお願いごとができるということで、「厄除け」と「商売繁盛」をお願いしました。というのも、昨年前厄ということを忘れていて、どこにも厄払いに行かなかったせいか、商売が暇だったり、家族が病気したり、スポーツをしている子供成績がイマイチだったりとよくありませんでしたが、ご祈祷頂いてから商売が上向き傾向に変わったし、子供は直後に行われた大会でまずまずの成績...

          Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior.
