Yamano Sengen Jinja (3)

gate of the shinto shrine
This is second gate of yamano sengen jinja.
Long approach lies behind this stone gate.
I like walk on this calm approach.

A long approach gives time to the visitor to forget the modern outside, and to enter slowly into the out-of-time part of the shrine..It takes part of the spirit's walk.

Very nice. It is good for all of us to slow down, I think...life goes by too fast as it is!

Interesting — this torii is made of stone, not wood?

I like the long paths to your shrines. I find that it helps put one in a meditative and prayerful frame of mind.
