Back to the presentWe toured the Shrine grounds.
Close to the Shrine, there was an interesting bonsai exhibit. I think we saw some of these same little trees last year and it doesn’t look like they’ve grown a millimeter.
While we were looking at the fortunes, a monk came out and gave us each a book on the Shinto religion – in English!
|I didn't realize it at the time, but he is in the left edge of the photo.|
The festival had all the typical food and game vendors which cover two long streets. The Shrine is in the area where the two streets meet.
After leaving this festival, we made our way to the Mochi Festival. I’ll post about it another day.
