九所明神

Today’s photo is from Kyoto, Japan. The interesting thing (to me) about these buildings is that even though they are on the site of a Buddhist temple (Ninnaji), they are Shinto in design. These three buildings hold nine gods and have been doing so since 1644. The stone lanterns in front come from the 17th Century as well.
