Ooi Shrine (大井神社) in Shimada City (2): Ooi Ebisu Shrine (大井恵比寿神社)

Ooi Shrine (大井神社) in Shimada City within walking distance from Shimada JR station north exit is actually a group of shrines more or less dedicated to the Ooi River, a major river in Japan that travelers had to cross with the help of porters until the end of the Edo Era.
The one shrine I singled out this time is called Ooi Ebisu (大井恵比寿) as it is dedicated both to to the Oi Reiver and Ebisu God!

I couldn’t find its founding date but it is quite old, even by Japanese standards!

SN3O0173

The roofing is in perfect condition although I suspect it must have been rebuilt many a time through the ages!

SN3O0174

Imposing lantern!

SN3O0175

It is particularly impressive at dusk!

SN3O0176

A new stone lantern standing by a venerable tree!

SN3O0179

This old bridge is open only on special occasions!

SN3O0177

Pity it is closed. I would have liked to investigate the interior!

SN3O0169

Very peaceful atmosphere in the evenings!

SN3O0170

Another ancient “monument”…

SN3O0178

I’ll be back soon, old tree!
