Worshiper On The Other Side Of Torii

Worshiper praying in front of hall

A worshiper was just praying in front of the small hall

Shot at Senju Motohikawa Jinja, a Shinto shrine in Kitasenju, Tokyo.

This town was one of the post stations built on the route of Nikko Kaido Way and Oshu Kaido Way. After walking along the old Way, I was being separated emotionally from the Way. The Way didn't attract me so much. I get sidetracked and entered into the residential area.

In the meantime, I came to a modest Shinto shrine. A stone Torii stood at the entrance. And a wooden hall was seen at the end of the approach way. A worshiper was standing in front of the hall and praying. This small shrine was dedicated to Daikokuten, one of the Seven Lucky Gods. Because it was a god of commerce and prosperity, I went to the hall and prayed to hope that something good will be happening.
