Shirahige Shrine (白髭神社)in Shizuoka City, Suruga Ku, Shimojima!


There are many Shinto shrines called “Shirahige/白髭/White Beard” in Shizuoka City and Prefecture!
I discovered this one through pure luck while cycling along a side street in Shimojima, Suruga Ku, Shizuoka City!

It must be pretty old as the newest of the three torii gates dates back more than 120 years ago!

It is one of those shrines which must have been repaired and rebuilt many a time but are still actively venerated!

It is a bit unusual to discover three stone torii gate in a row!

Looking back at the entrance!

Many stone lanterns!

The last torii gate!

Let’s look at one of the stone lanterns!

A deer and a cloud!

The cloud is a bit different on that lantern!

And the deer is facing the other way!

The lion guarding the left!

And the one guarding the right!

Guarding lions and wild boars under the eaves!

The shrine!

The crested money offerings box!

The proper way to salute!

The inside is properly looked after!

Small offering tables!

The greatest part of the shrine building has been recently restored!

Especially the back part!

Cute pinion!

Beautiful roofing!

Good-bye White Beard!
