of the gods?
|About 2km west of Kirishima Jingu lies a big rock
with Sanskrit written on a crevice about 10cm (4 in). This rock
cannot be moved by human strength, so who put it there and who carved
in the writing?

Jingu lie a rock that looks like a tortoise. No matter what angle

April. But amazingly, every year in May water gushes down this river
along with tons of fishes.
