Sumiyoshi Road near Sumiyoshi Shrine

If you get out the east gate of Sumiyoshi Shrine, there is Sumiyoshi Road, the road that the people from eastern part of Kansai, used to walk to worship Sumiyoshi Shrine.

If you walk a couple of minutes, there is a point where Sumiyoshi Road and Kumano Road are crossing.

There is a bread shop on the corner, and you can eat ice cream cone during the summer time.
