Fresh greenery of Metasequoia trees 2024.06.16 About 500 metasequoia trees are planted on the prefectural road Koaraji Makinozawa Line, which runs through the agricultural park Makinopic Land, for a length of about 2.4 km, forming a landscape typical of the Highlands as an approach road to the Makino Highlands. The beautiful scenery of the four seasons, such as the budding and fresh greenery of Spring, the deep green of summer, the Autumn leaves of autumn, and the bare trees and Snow Flower in winter, harmonizes with the mountains of the Nosaka Mountains, which are in the distance, and fascinates people who visit. In 1994 (Heisei 6), it was selected as one of the Yomiuri Shimbun's "New 100 Views of Japan Street Trees" and has attracted public attention.

Baekje Temple 2024.06.15 Baekje-ji Temple is one of the oldest Temple in Omi Province, founded by Prince Shotoku in the 14th year of Suko, more than 1400 years ago. A long time ago, when Prince Shotoku took inn at the foot of Mt. Tarobo in Yokkaichi, he saw Zuiko (Myoko) in the eastern mountains every evening. The next morning, the prince was mystified, and when he entered the mountains, he found a large tree with the upper half of its trunk cut off in the place of the light spring. Around this large tree, Mr./Ms.'s mountain monkey worships with fruit offerings. When the prince saw this scene, he felt that this great cedar tree was a sacred tree, and he was instructed to build a statue of the Bodhisattva Kanzenon with this large tree growing, and he put his first sword into it. This Kanzenon is called "Ueki Kannon" because it is a large tree with roots, and the trunk of the upper half becomes the "eleven-sided Kannon" enshrinement facing east at Yongunsa Temple in Baekje, and the west-facing "Ueki Kannon" faces each other to become "two Kannon-sama of the same tree".

Kankochi Suwa!!!  Introducing the Takashima Castle Festival! May 26, 2024 (the fourth Sunday in May every year). The 55th Takashima Castle Festival was held in. This year, 19 groups presented on stage. Hip-hop dances, Japan dances, Drum, singer singing, Restrooms available and the Matsumoto Castle Gun Corps (arquebus) were Restrooms available.   The Gun Squad made a strong impression on me. Restrooms available even in Japan. The arquebus is about 430 years old Restrooms available and I think that there are few people who have traditionally preserved the ones that can be used today Squid The people who protect the arquebus and carry on the tradition are the people of the Matsumoto Castle Gun Corps. That's why arquebuses can be seen at events such as Matsumoto Castle. The gunners brought several types of arquebuses. To the untrained eye, I saw two types of arquebuses. The first is the bantsu (infantry gun), and the next is the medium tube (medium gun). They fired blanks in several different formations. It was a great impact sound! Finally, a batter from Suwa shot the middle tube. It was a huge sound that seemed to cut through the space we were in. It was really amazing, and I felt wonderful! Drum performances, children's Hip-Hop dances, and families came to watch. In this festival, you can buy specialties from Stalls, sister cities, and friendship cities, and you can also do tree climbing!!  We were blessed with good weather and many citizens came to the event. If you have the opportunity to come to the Takashima Castle Festival, please come and enjoy it!

◆ Myojin Stone ◆ Myojin Stone is an oval-spherical boulder with a major axis of about 2.5 meters, a minor axis of about 1.8 meters, and a height of about 1.2 meters yen. I don't know how long it has been in this area, but it is thought that it was brought from the Ina Mountains by the flooding of the Mibuzawa River in ancient times. This rock has been revered by people since ancient times as a mysterious rock that is not frightened by large floods, even though it can be easily moved by the power of a child. Also, I don't know when it started, but it was surrounded by a Jade fence and was considered a sacred place of worship for Suwa Grand Shrine. The origin of the name is unknown, but it is said that when the Suwa Grand Shrine solicited the Suwa Daimyojin to this area, a shintai was enshrinement on this rock and a festival was held until the shrine (Mibuzawa Suwa Shrine) was completed. Since then, it has been customary to use this rock as a temporary enshrinement for the Shintai during the expansion and renovation of the shrine. ● Details of Myojin Stone ・ Request to customers who Use  The people of the district take good care of this stone.  When you go inside and push the stones, be careful not to break the Sacred straw ropes or sakaki decorations. ・Facilities  Restrooms available with handrails ・Toilet  without ・Parking lot  None (Use the parking lot in front of the nearby Mibusawa Suwa Shrine) ・Inquiries  Toyooka Travel Time (0265-49-3395)

Narai juku "It's off-limits today due to road construction!" Alamār!" It is located in Narai, Shiojiri City, Nagano Prefecture. Narai Juku is the 34th post town in the Nakasendo Highway, counting from Itabashi Inn on the Edo side and Moriyama Inn on the Kyoto side, just in the middle of the Nakasendo Highway. The Town has been selected as a national Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings and retains a strong appearance of the past. On the day I visited, half of the road was off-limits due to road construction (tears). The construction had not started yet early in the morning, so I asked to take a picture. "It's off-limits today due to road construction!" Alamār!" I don't know if the two people in the photo were talking. Restrooms available.

Wishes come true "Shikinamiya" / Ryukyu Hachisha It is one of the eight Ryukyu shrines in Naha City, Okinawa Prefecture. Restrooms available are shrines that received special treatment from the Ryukyu royal government, and they are called the Ryukyu Eight Shrines. Restrooms available has a legend in Shikina Shrine, and there is a cave behind the Main Shrine. A long time ago, a woman named Ōama Shirarei found a cave that emitted a mysterious light at night, and found a binzuru in it, and her wish came true because she deeply believed in it. In addition, since he cured the illness of the son of the king of Ryukyu at that time, it is said that he founded the Shikina Palace there. The Main Shrine was built around the 16th century. The pre-war building was built in the style of Sangensha and was roofed with main tiles, but it was burned down in the Battle of Okinawa, rebuilt in 1968 (Showa 43), and rebuilt in 2013 (Heisei 25) to become the current structure. I went to Shikinagu for the first time ^^ I also went to see the cave behind the Main Shrine, but it's a pity that the gate is closed, and it seems that the cave door opens on the 1st and 15th of every month and you can go inside. It is also known as the Power Spot.
