Two trees were planted just in front of the prayer hall. And a Shimenawa, a rice straw rope used for ritual purification, was spanned between the trees. Besides, two Shide, zigzag-shaped paper streamer, were hung from it. Many worshipers were coming to the prayer hall. And I could see them through the rope.
Most of them seemed not to care about this sacred tree in the precinct. Yet the trees stood statuesquely.
