Gate, Lanterns And Prayer Hall

Entrance of Shinto shrine

The prayer hall was seen at the end of the approach way

Shot at Konnoh Hachiman-Gu, a Shinto shrine in the city of Shibuya, Tokyo.

The approach went through the wooden gate and stretched straight to the prayer hall. It was flanked by the lanterns in the precinct.

A name tablet was hung at the gate and its name was written in Chinese character. And Shide dangled under the tablet. Because it wasn't a famous Shinto shrine, not so many worshipers were in the precinct. As contrasted to Meiji Jingu which was located near here, the precinct was quiet. So I thought it was possible to pray at the top of the bent in this shrine.
