here we are towards the beginning
W and her parents went right; the kids and I went left
The kiddos enclosed in a tunnel of tori; we counted; there are at least 4-500 in this short 200 m section
We hiked up to a small lake and a little further on were some small shrines.
the fox is a messenger god; there were many foxes here, some with messages in their mouths, and others with no message
Its places like this that make me wish that
a) I wasn't totally illiterate
b) I knew something about Shinto
But it was really beautiful!
