Sound the Bells


Hi, it's been awhile since my last post. I was in Sapporo for a wedding and didn't have time to do anything here. Very sorry. But I'm back!

These are the bells at the Sakainari Shrine. This shrine is said to have been built sometime between 1789 to 1800. The location was at first between Hiyoshicho and Miyukicho, but then the boundries changes, and another area, Higashicho, was added. So now every year the festival at Sakainari Shrine is hosted by tall 3 of the areas.

Love those smiling bells :). I can see this shrine is surrounded by tall buildings, isn't it? I was reading about Sapporo last night but didn't know you were there. Would like to see a Japanese wedding, too. I missed one when in Miyajima.

Henny, it is surrounded by tall buildings! It's sort of behind the apartment building in the other post. Japanese wedding are really interesting, I hope you get a chance to go :)
