Wonderful photos, thank you for sharing
Do you know what is that demon figure on the next to last photo?
Ummm actually I don’t know, but I assume it’s some kind of Ogre as this shrine was built to protect people from ogres coming from other world…
Long time ago (Heian to Edo era) in Japan people believed in ogres and monsters and there are many scary stories about them.
