Shirahige Shrine (白髭神社)in Shizuoka City, Suruga Ku, Shimojima!

There are many Shinto shrines called “Shirahige/白髭/White Beard” in Shizuoka City and Prefecture!
I discovered this one through pure luck while cycling along a side street in Shimojima, Suruga Ku, Shizuoka City!

It must be pretty old as the newest of the three torii gates dates back more than 120 years ago!

SN3O0582

It is one of those shrines which must have been repaired and rebuilt many a time but are still actively venerated!

It is a bit unusual to discover three stone torii gate in a row!
