Some worshippers passed through the gate between trees

Shot at Samukawa Jinja, a Shinto shrine in Samukawamachi, Kanagawa.

It's not known exactly when Samukawa Jinja was built. However, it is written in blood that this Shinto shrine has a long history. The name of this shrine was written on Engishiki, which is a Japanese book about laws and customs written in 927. So the establishment was dated back at least 1000 years. According to the legend, this shrine was built about 1600 years ago. It is said the emperor of that time dedicated to this shrine already.

Nevertheless, every architecture in the precinct is not so old. So it was difficult to feel the history only by seeing the architectures.

Walking around the precinct, I came to one of the approaches, which was not the main approach. A wooden gate was seen at the end of the path. And some worshippers were passing through.
