This very small shinto shrine is located in central funabashi.
Toshogu ( 東照宮 ) means a shinto shrine devoted Tokugawa Ieyasu (1543-1616) who was the founder and first Shogun (general) of the Tokugawa shogunate.
They say that funabashi toshogu is smallest toshogu.
Even small, It is a proof of history.
Ieyasu had a large rest house in funabashi.
He liked falconry.
Funabashi was on the way to his falconry spot.

Last Friday, I went to ebigawa (ebi-river) to take photo of cherry blossom.
After taking photos of cherry blossom, I walked along the river.
And I found those ducks in the river.
I thought those ducks were viewing petals of cherry blossom on the water.

I took these photos last Friday on the walking road by ebigawa ( ebi-river ).
Petals of cherry blossom flow in the river.
Please click the the second photo, you can see petals falling to the river.
In a part of the river that flows slowly, the water is almost covered with petals.
Those petals dye the river water white(slightly pink).

Funabashi shrine (Funabashi daijingu) is a shinto shrine that is located in central funabashi.
Do you remember the shrine in winter.
I took these photos yesterday.
It was calm and peaceful.
I like the contrast between green needles of pine trees and white cherry blossoms.
