Steep Stairway Of Shinto Shrine

Steep stairway of Shinto shrine

A steep stairway was the main entrance of the Ichigaya Kamegaoka Hachiman-Gu shrine

Shot at Ichigaya Kamegaoka Hachiman-Gu shrine, a Shinto shrine in Ichigaya, Tokyo. The small Shinto shrine called Ichigaya Kamegaoka Hachiman-Gu was built on the top of the hill. Before the tall buildings were built around the shrine, its precinct could be a vantage point.

In most of the cases, the Shinto shrine which has a long history was built on the top of the hill. This shrine was also built about 600 years ago. I think the things of high virtue prefer the high place to look down upon the ordinary people. Anyway, it was hard to climb this steep stairway to visit the prayer hall of this shrine.
