Foreign Friday

Shinto Shrine Bells
Autumn 1979

Some, but not all, Shinto shrines have bells, and most shrines are painted red. Other shrines I visited in Japan can be seen in previous Foreign Friday posts: here and here.

  1. It was interesting to read the practices involved in visiting a shrine. Is that what you did on your visits?

  2. Fascinating about the practices, and your photo is very beautiful.

  3. We visited a few shrines when I was in Japan... Kyoto and Osaka...I think. At the time I don't think I appreciated the tours as much as I should of!!

  4. Very colorful shrine. Nice photo.


I love comments!
