Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan - February 2020

Anothr view of Motonosumi Inari Shrine


Near the shrine is this massive concreate sea wall.
On the day I visited the wall looked small do to the size of the waves that were pounding it.


All the best,
Mike

More from Motonosumi Inari Shrine



Once one reaches the top of the torii gate path there is a big torii gate with a money collection box between two foxes (with a heart on the front of it).
I'd guess that it's about 6 meters from the ground to the money box and if one can toss a coin in the box your dreams will come true.



A shot from the backside of the torii gate. The little black dot above the telephone pole is an incoming coin.



Many try, few succeed. From my observation there seemed to be a lot more women trying to get a coin in the box than men.



All the best,
Mike

Thanks for the great images of Japan, Mike.

I spent the first two years of my Navy time in Yokosuka, and the remaining 18 years trying to get back. Japan is a wonderful place to be....thanks for sharing!

Thank you, Kamurah! If you ever make it back to Yokosuka let me know, I'll buy you a beer or a cup of coffee, your choice.

All the best,
Mike
