Motoyawata : Katsushika Hachimangu shrine in Spring (葛飾八幡宮)

I must upload an article about it in April.

When I went to Mama river to see cherry blossoms, I dropped in at Katsushika Hachimangu Shrine.

Motoyawata : Cherry blossoms around Mama river
So Beautiful ! I got up at 12 o'clock this morning. (morning? it's already noon.) I went to bed at 0:00, so I slept for 12 hours :O I have a backache :( Probably,I had awaken once at 8 o'clock...
The shrine stands besides the street to the Mama river.

These trees were far from in full bloom. Compared with Mama river, too.
Only the tree that this side was in half bloom.

真間川の桜を見に行ったとき、葛飾八幡宮にも寄ったのです。ちょうど通り道だったので。

If these trees are going to be in full bloom, it can’t be expected so beautiful sight.
I think some trees are going to die.
There were many dead branches 🙁

The notice says that you should sterilize by boiling before drinking the water.

Oh, there are someone drinking the water.

Surely, I got a goshuin at a selling amulets booth. 😀
