I shot visit a Shinto shrine. After leaving Shibuya Hikawa Jinja, I came to Konnoh Hachiman-Gu. This shrine is just a whoop and a holler from Shibuya Hikawa Jinja. According to legend, these shrines were built in the same year.

This shrine was much bustling than the shrine which I visited before. I saw more worshipers in this precinct. And I found a circle made with Imperata cylindrica on the approach way. It is believed that the uncleanness would be purified by entering the circle. A woman was standing in front of it. In the meantime, she was about to enter.
