Japans New Years Day has a custom of beginning, referring to the first visit to the shrine temple for the first time of the year to protect the peace. Last year's leap year countdown was spent in front of the Nagoshima Shrine in Naoshima. It was probably too cold in Hokkaido this year and went to sleep early. I remembered it until January 2, and the map shows that there is a North Gate Shrine nearby, and the walking distance is not too far, so I decided to look at it in the past. The
street is mostly covered in snow, no passers-by, only occasional crows call to break the silence. Keep an eye on the street signs in Wakkanai
. In addition to the common Japanese and English, there is also a line of Russian.
Yanpo Road was shocked to go to the shrine, and there are so many people waiting in line to pay homage. The shrine began in 1785 and moved here in 1892. After that, it was completely burned and the scale was today. Although it is the largest shrine in the area, it does not appear on the tourism promotion website or the manual. The painted horse is a pattern of swine rushing, and the Yushen sign is also very interesting. It is a small crab. ~
