Sacred Sake In Hie Jinja

Sacred sake

Many sake barrels were placed

Shot at Hie Jinja, a Shinto shrine in Nagatacho, Tokyo.

In a corner of the precinct, some barrels were stacked in the rack. These barrels were filled with sacred sake. And they were offered to the deities.

Though the deity enshrined in this shrine is not Bacchus, most deities in Shintoism love alcohol. So many sake storehouses devoted sake to shrines and the brands is written on each barrel in Chinese characters. I wonder the people working in the shrine drink these alcohols in real life.
