Japanese Shinto Shrine Pagoda
While there aren't many Shinto Shrines that are pagodas, I felt like making one anyways. Shinto Shrines are Japanese religious sites that contain Kami or Dieties from the Shinto religion. This particular Shrine is in a Buddhist theme meaning that it is very old (before the restoration of Shinto to purist Japanese styles) The tree that hangs off the edge of the cliff is considered sacred (hence the rope around it), and therefore a shrine was built to honor the Kami of that tree.
About this creation



You can see the Shimenawa or rope hanging above the doorway. This particular one is very small.

This is the Torii or gate that you walk through to get to the Shrine. Everything beyond that Torii is considered sacred.


A priestess greets at the front of the Shrine.


A man is bowing before entering the Shrine. Inside he will give a coin, take a piece of rice paper with a prayer written on it and pull the rope to ring a bell that lets the Kami know that you are praying.


This is the actual Shrine where the diety resides that is behind a wall. You wouldn't actually see this, but I wanted to get a shot of it. The golden bell is hanging there as well.


A tourist takes a photo of his wife as she ties her pryer to the others. (she may need a step stool)




Some of the little shrines that are a bit overgrown with weeds.


The small bridge that crosses the stream, as a priestess is kneeling down to collect the offering made at a small shrine.


Thank you for visiting our Shinto Shrine.

Quoting Matthew Oh Very nice! By the way, why did you not comment on my creations from the house of comments? I thought the rule was that you had to comment on each of the nine creation (if you haven't already) on the home page before you can add your own creations? Just asking. Back to your moc. Very realistic looking! Love the details! Keep up the good work!
Hi. I have read and re-read the rules of the group and it states: "You must comment on and like ONE of the nine on the homepage." I did comment on and like another creation. I didn't for yours because I don't care for guns nor do I build them. I am sorry if that offends you, but they just don't interest me. Thank you for the comment though.
