“Shirahige/白髭/White Beard2, probably a dedication to great age is name found everywhere for a shinto shrine in Japan!
The (new) torii gate!
This fairly old on eis located in Shiuzoka City, Aoi Ku, Kamiasharai, right in front of a Shizutetsu Supermarket of all places!
It was first built in 1770 for a God called Takeshi Uchi No Sukune No Mikoto and its festivals are held on New Year’s day, in June and on the 17th of October!
The “original” monument!
As I said its torii gate is quite new!
Shirahige Shrine (白髭神社)!
An old but small and lonely stone hand washing basin….
two stone lanterns differing only in small details!
A mountain for both of them!
An unusual cloud and a prone deer!
But the deer here is standing!
No, this is not the main shrine!
Some of the space in this shrine was used to build a Community Hall!
“The Shrine is at the back!”
A venerable tree is standing witness!
You will find a small shrine at the foot of the tree!
It is probably older than the one standing on its left!
The main shrine!
Taking a frontal whole picture is not possible!
The money offerings box!
the shrine name and a very thin rice straw garland!
A side view!
The roof is probably the best part!
Good-bye, shirahige shrine!
