The staircase was steep and long

Shot at Suwa Jinja, a Shinto shrine in Nagasaki city, Nagasaki.

This Shinto shrine was built on the top of a hill. There was a steep staircase at the main entrance of the shrine. I didn't know whether this shrine was suit-and-tie or not. Yet I felt its dignity because it was stationed on the hill. It looked down the city. Who built this shrine was vividly aware of that the distinguish existence was located on the higher places than where the ordinary people were.

A woman and a man were stopping in the middle of the stairway. They seemed to be resting there. They might be tired.
