Atsuta Shrine: The Roosters!

As I promised in my previous post here are the roosters at Atsuta Shrine!

I didn't expect to see roosters here. There were about 4 of them walking around this area.





This guy walked around from behind me and was looking at me like "Well, aren't you going to take MY picture?".







This lantern was huge! I had to look up to see the top of it.


Sake casks for the Gods.


There were some really great designs on these casks.

I think my favorite one is the Oni Koroshi.





In my next post I will show you the thousand year old tree and the main shrine that everybody goes to.
