Hachimangu Shrine (八幡宮神社) in Shimada City (Rokugo JR Station)!

SN3O0067

If you get off at Rokugo Station/六合駅 between Fujieda City and Shimada City JR Stations, go out through the south exit and you will find one of the five Shinto Shrines called Hachimangu in Shimada City!

SN3O0068

Stone lantern at the main gate

It is quite small but ancient.
Its small park seems popular with the local lovers who don’t have many places to talk in peace in this islated part of Shimada City!

Moon and crescent motif openings of the the front gate stone lanterns!

Like any shrine, it is surrounded with old trees, not that remarkable, except for an old cherry tree with pure white blossoms!

SN3O0075

Different and probably older stone lanterns!

Like many other shrines, a more recent building stands in front of the original shrine whose access is guarded.

The money offering box and the praying bell and rope!

SN3O0078

A bit too thin rice straw garland, but an interesting wooden motif!
