Red Colors In Naritasan

This is a part two entry of Naritasan Shinshoji temple that features red colors I've seen there.

Inside of the Great Main Hall
Goma (Sesame) fire ritual ceremony takes place twice a day and the ceremony has never ever been discontinued since the foundation of the temple. Over 1000 years!!! That's terrific! Fudo/Acala (不動明王) is worshipped there.

Niomon Gate
The 800 kg weighed big lantern (提灯) is hanged in the Niomon gate (仁王門). It says "Uogashi (魚がし).

Three storied Pagoda
The 25 m tall three storied pagoda (三重塔) was built in 1712.

Inari Shrine
Naritasan is very complex. Inari shrine (稲荷神社) is located in the temple.

  1. Yoshiさん こんにちは! お盆帰省中ですか?
    Yoshiさんの撮られる 神社仏閣を見ると、いつも心がゾワゾワします。
    例えて言えば、ギターやベースのチューニングを下げた通常より低い音で
    ド派手に始まる、ヘヴィメタルの曲のようです。
    テクニカルな撮影、機材の進化を駆使された効果ですね!d(-_☆)

    休暇明け、今年の後半戦も お互いにがんばりましょう!
    どうぞよろしくお願いします。
