Rikuu Highway

At Tenmangu, established during the Kamakura period, Sugawara No Michizane, a deity of scholarship, is enshrined. It is a spot to pray for passing examination scores and graduation from academic institutions.It is said that rubbing Tenmangu's messenger spirit, the Gankake Nade Gyu (literally meaning "cow to rub when making prayers"), will surely bring you divine favor.A great many plum trees blossom every year from early January to mid-March. Come smell and feel this beauty setting for yourself.
