  • A quiet and throatful shrine⛩ The sea is in front of you and it is very natural, and picnics and small parks are recommended in the hole. During the festival, a lot of shrine sass were decorated and beautiful✨ When you want to take a walk or see the sea, it is recommended by all means. There was a place where the car was able to be stopped though there were a few.
