Fence and Foliage ;

          Linking this post to Good Fences and Floral Friday;
 *For these two meme, I'd like to introduce you two little shrines* 

Shrine in our city park (Good Fence)
Originally, this shrine with "God of water" was located different place at the river bank in our city. It was moved to the artificial lake (created more than 300 years ago). And later our city park was made around this lake in 1925.

Torii (鳥居)Gate Way to the shrine
(Torii is the gate which separate mundane place from sacred area where God reside)
The shrine is surrounded with orange fence :)
We can go back to see the inner shrine.




Shrine in the next city (Floral Friday; featuring foliage)
The festival I introduced in this post  the other day was held in front of the open space of this shrine with "God of sea" for navigation safety.

You can see the people gathered under the Foliage at festival 
and the cement barrel I explained in my festival post.

Than you very much for stopping by;  I hope you're having a Wonderful June.

  18. Dearest Miyako,
    Trying again my comment as I got an error code when publishing...
    Such a lovely arch for entering sacred space!
    Does the orange fence have any special meaning too?
    We do have in Indonesia several arches when leaving the mundane world and entering the world of the Gods or Spirits. It adds to the sacredness of certain temple areas.
    Lovely photos.
    Hugs,
    Mariette
