One of the venerated trees inside Mishima Tasiha!

Mishima Taisha/Mishima Great Shrine in the City of Mishima is one oone of the 3~4 biggest and most important Shinto shrines in Shizuoka Prefecture and it is simply too vast and comprising too many other shrines to be described i a single article.
This the first of a series of reports as I plan to visit Mishima City many times again in the near future and take the opportunities to discover other aspects and sights!
