A man bowed under the thick sacred rope in Samukawa Jinja

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

Passing through the wooden gate, I entered the courtyard and moved to the main hall. The courtyard was spacious. Although this shrine is one of the major destinations for New Year's visit in Kanagawa Prefecture, the courtyard was deserted.

When I came to the prayer hall, some people prayed. It is said that the response from deities enshrined here is the charm against bad luck related to the directions. When people move, travel, and relocate, they are protected against danger if they pray here.

After paying homage, I got out of the way and watched the worshipers praying. The worshippers came here one after another although it was not crowded. Looking up, I found a thick sacred rope was hung from the eaves of the hall. It was thick and it was unusual in Kanto region.
