Hakone Shrine in Spring

I went to Lake Ashinoko. First I visited “Hakone Shrine”,Kuzuryu Shrine.

It takes almost 2 hours from my studio.

Friends of mine took me there.

Most of the people goes up the stairs to the main building.

Recently, Tokyo became warm even hot like summer but Lake Ashinoko remained chilly.

When you get into the shrine you may wash your mouth and your hands.

Now we have COVID19 era, it is not an obligation.

I do not know what should be the right things ha ha.

When you wash your mouth and hands how can infection occurs ?

Look at the nine dragons.

Artistic and interesting figures.

Tall tree maybe Pine

Tall tree maybe Pine

I did not know but it was a famous pine tree called “The pine of an easy delivery”.

She lives for over thousand years.

Please see the picture and compare with the man in front of her.

You can imagine how tall she is.

Lake Ashinoko and tiny cherry blossom tree.

Hakone is chilly due to high altitude.

So Sakura, cherry blossom tree, still has the flowers.

The air is fresh and the water is pure.


Isaiah 52:7

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”
