花脸猫伱Morioka Hachimangu Shrine, an important shrine in Japan, with its beautiful scenery and profound heritage For those who often travel to Japan, Hachimangu should be a familiar name. People like me who are traveling to Japan for the first time always see the Hachimangu Shrine in various strategies, as if it exists in any county or city in Japan. Later, after I went to Japan and asked them, I learned that Hachimangu Shrine is a very important shrine for the Japanese. • The recognition of Hachimangu is all over Japan. There are more than 40,000 Hachimangu Shrines and Hachiman Shrines. I am impressed by the large number. It is no wonder that they are scattered in major counties and cities. The most famous of these is Usa Shrine in Usa City, Kyushu, which is the head office of Hachimangu Shrine in Japan. But this time I am going to Morioka Hachimangu Shrine. Morioka Hachimangu Shrine once encountered a big fire, and later rebuilt a new large shrine, which has become what you see now. • First visit to Morioka Hachimangu Shrine. This time, I walked slowly from Morioka Station with my friends. It took about 30 minutes. You can also take a bus, which is faster. The main tone of Morioka Hachimangu Shrine is red, the roof is dark brown, and the gold leaf decoration and lacquer patterns are different from other shrines. It makes me feel more noble. Walking around in this shrine, but also spent a pleasant time. You can also take pictures here with friends, the scenery is amazing! •Address: 13-1, Yawatacho, Morioka City, Iwate Prefecture•Phone: 019-652-5211

bmi2004Morioka in northeastern Japan is an underdeveloped small town. Except for the city ruins park, which is the museum and this ancient park, I went to the park during the Sansa Dance. There are not many people in the park and the greenery is good, but there is no need to bend it.

City Park
jiajiatravelLike Kasumijo Park in Yamagata, Morioka Jo castle site park in Iwate Prefecture is a park full of ancient castle senboku, and it is a park where mottled castle walls are preserved in the park. Morioka Joji Park is a sacred place in Iwate Prefecture, and every year from the middle of 4 to the first half of 5, the Morioka Sakura Festival is held, and the 200 trees of Yoshino CHO, zanui, and the other side of Edo Cho in the park are opened, and when we go, it is full, and there is a view of Sakura Cho everywhere. It is also a large number of Japanese people who come to the park to enjoy the cherry blossoms. In Japanese tradition, Hanami is a very solemn thing, wearing kimono to reward the most formal, and there are still many older people who maintain this habit. During the cherry blossom festival, cherry blossoms, ancient city sites and people wearing kimono to enjoy the cherry blossoms form a scene of ancient rhyme. [The cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of cherry blossoms of It is built in the mid Edo period, and it is built in the shrine which is the site of Morioka Jo castle, and it is built in the shrine which is the old building of the shrine against the cherry blossoms. A block away from the Busan Shrine, the Morioka District Court can also see a very magical "stone-cut pupa", a cherry tree that has grown from a huge granite rock for nearly 400 years. It was designated as a natural monument in Japan in 1923. The cherry tree, which grew from the crevice of the giant stone, is full of life, and it was the first cherry tree in Iwate Prefecture, with the idea of priming, and is popular in the local area. Morioka's old neighborhood still has many historic buildings, such as merchants and houses built from the 19 century to the first half of the 20 century, and the atmosphere is calm and harmonious. JR Tohoku Shinkansen and Hokkaido Shinkansen take the Akita Shinkansen line and JR Tohoku Shinkansen line to Morioka.
