Publicités

The other day I actually spent 3 hours waling from Sakurabashi Station, Shizutetsu line to Shin Shimizu Station circling around under the very mountains. before crossing Route 1 to turn back to the latter station I discovered the entrance of that particular shrine at the bottom of a lonely « hill ».

It wasn’t that big, but the flight of stairs was so tempting!

SN3O0133


Made of concrete, the torii/main gate and its plaque are not that old, but they were already pretty worn out.

The flight of stairs is climbing through a bamboo copse.

But I must say I was most impressed with the « komaini/Shishi/lion guards!

SN3O0148


The left one, always a mouth-shut lion, with its paw resting on the back of a smaller one!

SN3O0149


The right one, always with its mouth open!
