Kashima Jingu

Reviewed By StanleyAuckland - Auckland, New Zealand

Kashima Jingu is within a huge area of natural forrest in which there are many beautiful old cedar trees. It is about one hour by local train from Narita Station and worth a visit if you have a spare day.

Michi-no-Eki Itako

Reviewed By たびネコ - Tokyo, Japan

東関東自動車道の終点・潮来ICから車で1~2分です。交通量の多い主要道路からは外れた場所にありますが、旅行者が高速に乗る前に寄って行くようで、交通量の割に集客力はあるようです。
平日は判りませんが、休日は規模も大きく、大きめのビジョンがあったりイベントや出店も出ていて高速のサービスエリアのような雰囲気だと思います。
ザリガニ釣りやグラウンドゴルフ(コースは40コースあるらしい)、メダカの販売、金魚すくいなどがありました。
出店でも焼き鳥や牛すじカレーパンなどが美味しそうだったので買っちゃいました。
(カレーパンは「牛すじ」となっているので期待しましたが、まぁ、普通でした。。。でも「普通に美味しい」ですよ。おじさんのトークでは平日は出店していない、とのこと)

Katori Shrine

Reviewed By percyvakil - Mumbai, India

The Katori shrine, or Katori Jingu as it is known is an ancient shrine of the Shinto order said to have been started over two and a half thousand years ago. The Honten and other structures have been rebuilt many times over the centuries. The current structures were built around 1700 AD.
I went to Katori in February. I took a train from Narita to Sawara. After looking around in Sawara, and lunch there I asked how to get to Katori Jingu. A tourist office (no one spoke English) pointed and gestured for me to take a taxi from Sawara station.
Once there, the first thing you see is a wooden gateway with a forested area behind. Through the gateway is a path through the woods, sloping upwards with carved stone pillars on both sides. Inside there's a set of steps leading to the main temple.
The temple is a black wood structure and is beautiful.
Getting back was a problem. There was no taxi and no one around spoke English. I got to the nearby Katori station but there was no one there and no ticket machine or counter.
After waiting half an hour and seeing no one around, I saw a sign on the railway platform pointing in the direction of Sawara town. I walked for an hour till I got to Sawara station.
I was told later that I could have boarded a train at Katori and bought the ticket on arrival at Narita (information not confirmed)
I also found out later there are local busses from Sawara station passing the shrine, both ways.

鹿島アントラーズと北海道コンサドーレ札幌のJ1リーグ公式戦を観戦に訪問しました。
前回の反省を踏まえサッカー場までは自家用車で訪問し、民間の駐車場(停めたところは1,000円)に駐車しました。やはりアクセスは不便だと実感。
競技場の中はやはり観戦し易いですね。ホームとアウェイが逆になっていて驚きました。
試合開始前の3時間前から入場できるのはうれしいですが再入場できないのは不便。
特にアウェイ側はお店も少なく選べるものも限られるので再入場できればなぁと思いました。

Suigo Itako Iris Festival

In early June, the lovely Itako Riverside Iris Park in Itako, Ibaraki sees about 1 million irises bloom in 500 varieties. To celebrate, the Suigo Itako Iris Festival has been held from late May to late June every year since 1952. During the festival, a variety of events unique to Itako are held, such as the Yomeiri-Bune ("Bride on a Boat"), mentioned in the 1960 hit song "Itako Hanayome-san," and the traditional Ayame Dance (Dance of the Irises). The festival also features the Ro-bune rowboats, used as transportation since ancient times, providing plenty of opportunities to sightsee along the Mae River.
