It's called Mitarashi Pond. Over 400 Thousand liters of water springs in a day, and it's legendarily talked as a miracle pond that the water sprang in one night and never gone dry even in the drought season. Now, Mitarashi Pond is a place of healing and purify.


Kashima Antlers of J.LEAGUE visits this historical shrine to pray for the victory. Such as a worshippers' hall roofed with imposing hinoki bark, a vermilion-lacquered gate which is one of the three best two-storied gates in Japan, and the oldest & biggest straight sword as a national treasure, there're many things to see.
