The Kitano shrine


There is a nice trail called "Yamabeno komichi" and you can find the Kitano shrine on the way. Tomorrow, the annual festival will be held at the shrine and neighbors are busy preparing for it.

It is believed that the horse is a sacred animal so it was decicated to a kami (god) in the old days. There is a small stable in front of the Itsukushima shrine and a statue of white horse is settled. In the past, a keeper was takinig care of a real horse there!
