Pictorial Offering And Fortune Slips

Wooden plaque hung from the tree

A wooden plaque was hung from the tree in the precinct

Shot at Takanawa Jinja shrine, a Shinto shrine in Takanawa, Tokyo.

Getting sidetracked from a wide national road, a narrow lane stretched. It was an approach of Takanawa Jinja. The Shinto shrine is modest and its precinct is small. However, according to the mythology, it has a long history. It was built about 500 years ago originally.

At the time of visiting, it was a cold day. It snowed sometimes and I could see my breath. The precinct was deserted. And the atmosphere made the place cooler.

Some trees were planted in the precinct. Many fortune slips were bound on the branches. It was the remnant of the crowd those who came here at the beginning of the new year. I found a pictorial offering among them. A dog was drawn on it because this year was a year of the Dog. In spite of this cold, the dog smiled happily.
