Wonderful people

4.0in the last week

Even though it is a shrine, it has a mountain name like a temple, and there are Kagura people who follow the flow of Yamabushi Kagura, so I think that the Tohoku region is still a place of Shinto and Buddhism training. The character "Ogami" is an amazing character in which three □ are arranged under the Amekanmuri and a dragon is written under it.
As of April 22, 3rd year of Reiwa, the precincts were slightly under pressure due to the widening work of nearby roads. In addition, there was a portable shrine in the portable shrine, but the Float floats that should have been stored together were currently under repair and were absent.
