Kusho Myojin @ Ninnaji

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.

A few days ago I watched The Barbarian and the Geisha. The opening scene is of a Bon Odori in 1856, and it reminded me of today’s photo, taken at the last Bon Odori I witnessed in 2013.
