Yes, it must be lonely being a fierce creature guarding a shrine!Re your question is this for real? - yes! That house is real. The valley on the southwest side of that mountain is filled with multi-million dollar homes.
I like the lion photo - a friendly lion?
It doesn't look too scary, it's a very good sculpture.
Perhaps not so lonely considering that they are a pair But one does hope that that morning dew is not actually saliva dripping in anticipation of a fine beef repast.
Both the entrance and the lion are beautiful! I think this is the first torii I've seen that's made of stone rather than wood.
Louis, thanks for the answer! That was a gorgeous post :)Leif, I'm sure it's friendly, but I'm not sure it's a lion ;DVP, there's actually another one of the other side looking the other way!Gary, yes, they always come in pairs! Did you notice that there is always one with it's mouth open and the other closed?Yuko, やっぱりシーサー!?笑。京都の神社とかにもいたんだょね、このシーサーらしき野獣!!!裕子のシーサーのマクロも見たいな～♪笑。Hilda, this is my first stone torii in Tokorozawa, too! Most seem to have wooden torii...I'll have to find out why :D
I am also like the lion photo..lovely lion there.
