Shin-Chiba : Towatari Jinja shrine and Chiba-ken Gokoku-jinja shrine

sponsored link

Two biggest shrines at the center of Chiba city

I’m arranging in my PC, and I found the photos that I took at.

I went to Towatari shrine and Chiba-ken Gokoku-jinja shrine 13 August.
(I was not conscious of anniversary of end of war. I forgot it.)

Gokoku-jinja shrine is so large that I couldn’t see all.

Each todofuken have Gokoku-jinja shrine.
So, I thought that I want to have a Goshuin-cho for Gokoku-jinja shrine,
and travel around the country with it.
(Now, I don’t want to do. Fall in and out of love quickly :P)

Towatari Jinja Shrine
I was in from here.(In fact, this is back gate.:()

    My son will be getting married at Chiba ken gokoku jinja shrine in April. Thanks you for posting these pictures. We are coming to the wedding, and I’m very excited, but I guess I’ll have to not smile TOO much at the ceremony. It seems very solemn.

    • Raipo says:

      I congratulate you on your son’s marriage :D.
      I saw a couple who were in the middle of wedding ceremony.
      They looked very happy 🙂
      I hope your son will have happy wedding ceremony.
