If you come out the south exit of Yoshiwara/吉原 Station between Fuji/富士 Station and Higasi Tago no Ura/東田子の浦 Station walk to your left on the main street and after 5 minutes you will find yourself at the bottom of a typical small rural Shinto Shrine!
It is only a short way upstairs!
The torii/鳥居, sacred gate!
Kinomoto Shrine plaque!
The small roofed concrete hand-washing basin!
A short paved way to the shrine!
The left lion guard with its mouth shut!
The right lion guard with its open mouth!
A venerable stone lantern!
The “haiden/worshipers’ hall”!
The sacred rice straw garland, the bell rope and the money offerings box!
The whole shrine is well maintained!
Another small shrine called Fushimi Inari Daimyoujin! The Goddess Inari looks after rice growers in particular!
The Honden/sacred hall closed to the public!
The roof decorations indicate that the shrine God is actually a Goddess!
Good-bye, Kinomoto Shrine!
