Floating Shinto Shrine in Shimada City!

If you ride along the Ikumi Line/伊久身線 in Shimada City you will discover a small new shnto shrine near the Dai Ichi Shogakou/第一小学校 bus stop!

SN3O0324

You can’t miss it as it is located near a cemetery amenities shop!

SN3O0327

It might be small but the bright white and red colors peek through the trees!

SN3O0328

You will see it across the street!

SN3O0329

This is the Shinto Shrine with its torii gate in front!

SN3O0330

But the building beside it is a Buddhist Temple!
It is not rare in Japan to find the two faiths cohabiting peacefully!

SN3O0331

The Temple is not that big but it is old although someone lives inside!

SN3O0332

Many temples and shrines share the same architectural characteristics!

SN3O0333

Interestingly enough the shrine, although it bears no visible name, has two different torii ates!

SN3O0334

A typical shrine color in Japan although it might vary between light orange and red purpleRE!

SN3O0335

But this one is very new!

SN3O0336

You are easily excused if you think at first this all the same religious site!

SN3O0337

The small temple is really old but its roofing is in good repair!

SN3O0338

But the rest of it might need some work!

SN3O0339

The walls areas simple as they can be!

SN3O0340

But I wouldn’t change the pinions!

SN3O0341

Taking a last peek around the building!

SN3O0325

Good-bye, “floating shrine”!
