Neighborhood Shrines and Temples

Whenever I'm out and about, I look both ways as I walk.  I'm not just looking for cars that may not see me, I'm looking for small neighborhood shrines or temples. Recently, when I was in Shizuoka City, I looked up a hill and saw this tiny shrine.



Just a short distance away was this bigger grander temple (I think it was a temple because of the cemetery and there was no torii, but I may be wrong).











What an interesting world I live in.

Even in Tokyo there seemed to be little shrines and temples tucked into the urban landscape. Fascinating.

You are an excellent guide of Japanese culture and history.

Fascinating cultural places. The buildings and gardens look serene, and the graves and the items left on them are very interesting.

It's so fun how you can stumble across these little shrines everywhere. Sometimes they are even more interesting than the big touristy ones!

I loved seeing the shrines in Japan. This is a wonderful reminder.
