What people are saying:

Zenchito Shrine-it is the largest shrine in Aomori. The Japanese worship crows very much. They call crows "sacred beasts". I don't know if this is related to crows. Is Zenchito is a crow? We don't understand their gods. Watch the excitement and take pictures of the scenery, it's pretty good.
