Teeny Tiny Shrine


When heading out for a walk, we found this really small shrine beside a parking lot of an apartment. I've gone by this place a thousand times, but didn't know this was here until recently.

It even has a Torii, a gate that separates the normal and sacred worlds. I think this is a Myojin style Torii.

Anyways, these small shrines hidden away in small corners are just as interesting as the bigger ones...and I've come to realize, much easier to take a picture of.

I like the idea of these small, intimate shrines. It's always nice to see that people still care about spirituality and not just the things of the world.
