Torii In Tabata Hachiman Jinja

Torii in Tabata Hachiman Jinja

A bronze Torii stood in the precinct

Shot at Tabata Hachiman Jinja, a Shinto shrine in Tabata, Tokyo.

This Shinto shrine was wrapped with the silence. No worshipers were seen at the time of visiting. However, it has a long history. According to legend, it was built in 1189 by Minamoto no Yoritomo, the founder and the first shogun of the Kamakura Shogunate.

There are some small shrines in the narrow precinct. The Torii in this photo belongs to Fuji Asama Sha. The deity enshrined in this shrine was deific Mt. Fuji, which is the tallest mountain in Japan. An animistic worship is still remaining in such a way.
