甚平そばに行って、麻賀田神社に行き、大杉に会ってきました。 聖徳太子の時代に植えられたそうです 宗吾霊堂は佐倉宗吾郎の菩提樹で、父子の墓もあります。 佐倉宗吾郎は、義民として、知られ、 江戸三代将軍家に直訴し、税金を軽くして、もらいましたが、直訴の罪により、父子共々、処刑されました。 佐倉惣五郎は、歌舞伎に なったり、今でも、農民に愛されて、語り継がれています。 I went Jinpei soba. went to Magata Shrine, and met Oosugi. It is said that it was planted in the time of Prince Shotoku

If staying in Narita you have to visit the temple. Try to get there at 9am for the ceremony. Great walk through streets from train station to temple.
