Introducing the photos posted on "Everyone's Post"!

This is a pickup post of the inbound tourism information SNS "Cool Japan Video".
Today, I would like to introduce "umestagram" post "Gotokuji Temple in Tokyo".

It's a cute photo of the beckoning cats with simple expressions.

Gotokuji Temple, which is related to Maneki-neko, is located in Setagaya Ward, Tokyo in the Kanto region.
A long time ago, Naotaka Ii, the lord of the Hikone clan, was beckoned by a cat in the temple on his way home from falconry and went inside, and suddenly a thunderclap came. The episode that he was able to avoid difficulties thanks to the cat and also enjoyed talking with Kazuhisa is the origin of "Maneki Neko's Birthplace".
In the wake of this, Godeji Temple was revived in the 10th year of Kanei (1633) with the support of Ii Naotaka.

At Godeji Temple, the beckoning cat is called "Maneki Neko". In the "Shofukuden" in the precincts, various sizes of Shofuku cat children are dedicated, and the sight is breathtaking.
At the shrine office, you will receive a red seal and an amulet and figurine of a Shofuku cat child, so how about a souvenir?

At the café "Mahorodo Aozuki" in the vicinity, you can enjoy a menu related to Godeji Temple such as "Maneki Nekodora".

Access is about a 10-minute walk from Gotokuji Station on the Odakyu Odawara Line, and about a 5-minute walk from Miyanosaka Station on the Tokyu Setagaya Line. There are many signs and figurines with cat motifs in front of the station and in the shopping street, and there are many highlights while going from the station to Gotokuji Temple.

Introducing the photos posted on "Everyone's Post"! This is a pickup post of the inbound tourism information SNS "Cool Japan Video". Today, I would like to introduce "KSK1991FKSM" post "Snowy scenery of Ginzan Onsen". The retro cityscape illuminated by the warm streets is a beautiful piece. Ginzan Onsen is a hot spring town located in Obanazawa City, Yamagata Prefecture in the Tohoku region, which has been selected as the "No. 1 hot spring atmosphere of the East". The nostalgic scenery of inns built from the end of the Taisho period to the early Showa period is impressive. The old-fashioned cityscape is also famous as a filming location for the drama "Oshin" and is said to have been the model for the Ghibli movie "Spirited Away". Not only in the daytime, but also in the fantastic night view with the sparkling streets, it is also popular as an Instagrammable spot. Along the river of Ginzan Onsen, there are many inns where you can enjoy the Taisho romance. Among them, we recommend the popular ryokan "Ginzan Onsen Traditional Inn Furuyamakaku", a colorless and transparent 100% free-flowing hot spring, and you can also enjoy a private open-air bath made of cypress. The registered cultural property inn "Notoya Ryokan" is a three-story wooden inn where you can feel the world view of Spirited Away. The hot springs have open-air baths and cave baths, and dishes such as Obanazawa beef and duck made with local ingredients are also attractive. For day trips, we also recommend the communal bath Shirogane-yu (usage fee 500 yen) and the free Waraku Foot Bath. ◆Access ◆ About 3 hours by Yamagata Shinkansen from Tokyo + 40 minutes by direct bus 【For day trips】 Parking at the "Shared Parking Lot" and "Taisho Roman Museum Mae" (There is no day-trip sightseeing parking lot beyond the shared parking lot) From each parking lot, take a paid bus.

Introducing the photos posted on "Everyone's Post"! This is a pickup post of the inbound tourism information SNS "Cool Japan Video". Today, I would like to introduce the post "Nagasaki Prefecture / Road Station Ikugetsu Bridge" by "HAYATO/Japan Scenery Photography and Superb Scenic Spots". It is a superb view that captures the large bridge illuminated by the setting sun and the sea. Located in Hirado City, Nagasaki Prefecture in the Kyushu region, Roadside Station Ikitsuki Ohashi Bridge is located in Ikutsuki Ohashi Park at the foot of the bridge, and is a roadside station with souvenirs, a multipurpose plaza, a walking path, and a tourist information center. The Ikugetsu Bridge connects Hirado Island and Ikutsuki Island. The light blue Ikugetsu Bridge and the superb view of the sea from the roadside station Ikugetsu Bridge are a must-see. The shop in the station building has a variety of chin (flying fish) dashi and chin kamaboko, sweets from local confectionery shops, and processed marine products. There is no food and beverage space in the restaurant, but the surrounding restaurants offer gourmet food made with local ingredients. Why don't you stop by the "Daiki area" of chin dashi ramen and "Hirado Seto Market Restaurant Seaside Cafe"? Roadside station Ikugetsu Bridge has plenty of toilets and parking lots, so it is recommended for staying in the car for a nap or rest. (Due to the proximity of the sea, you need to be careful on bad days)
