Inside Of The Prayer Hall

Inside of the prayer hall

The door of the prayer hall was open

Shot at Ichigaya Kamegaoka Hachiman-Gu shrine, a Shinto shrine in Ichigaya, Tokyo.

After climbing the steep stairway of Ichigaya Kamegaoka Hachiman-Gu, I came to the prayer hall. I stood at its facade. A wooden offertory box was placed and a sacred rope was hung from the eaves.

When I looked straight, I found the door of the prayer hall was open. In most of the cases, it was closed when nobody was in the hall. So the situation was uncommon. A staff with plaited paper streamers was seen inside. Perhaps, it was open to air out. I thought the deities enshrined here needed a breath of fresh air sometimes.
