I was thinking of posting something on the Itsukushima Shrine, but never have the time to do it.
I have taken pictures of at least three Lions
Right at the waterfront of the shrine is a Lion (first picture)which is quite unusual in its sculpture. This lion looks powerful and photogenic.
Lions have a special meaning in the Oriental culture, something which Orientals will revere.
Just back from a trip to Shikoku in Japan, after a long delay in the incoming flight.
The picture shows part of the Itsukushima Shrine – the part which looks like a portal in water.
This is located in Miyajima Island which has been worshipped as a divine island since ancient times.
