Aoshima-jinja

Here my third and last picture (together with 2 more in the WS) of the island of Aoshima located at the east coast of Kyūshū in the south of Japan.

This time no more views of the ‘devil’s washboard’ that surrounds the island. I mentioned before that under the palms you find a Shinto shrine, the Aoshima-jinja.
That shrine is quite close to the beach but from the main shrine you can follow a narrow path under the trees to go to another shrine, a very small one.
The faithful who visit the Aoshima-jinja, also all go to that other small shrine in the tropical forest.
I liked its red colour in the dense green forest.

I haven’t posted all the pictures of Japan that I wanted to show here … but meanwhile I’ve made another journey and I am a little impatient to start that new series …
