"V"isiting A Shrine At Night


Vertical dragon supplying water for visitors at Futaarayama Shrine in Utsunomiya, Tochigi Prefecture. The shrine was deserted when I visited there.


This is a Outdoor Wednesday, Watery Wednesday, Black and White Wednesday, and ABC Wednesday entry. V is for visit and more.

  9. The way you pictured it, the dragon seems to be alive and wandering in the shrine near you..A shrine must be such a wonderful place at night, when there's nobody around!
