日曜に参拝者はいなかった。
緑の濃い静かな神社、風でざわざわ木々の音だけが響き渡る境内。
社務所の横のピンポン押して、わざわざ御朱印ありがとうございます。

Um santuário bonito e com bastante significados! Vale a pena conhecer e admirar os detalhes da arquitetura! Próximo da prefeitura de Joso.

水海道八幡神社の宮司さんと何回もお話したことがありますが、いつも親切にしてくれたりボランティアで境内のお掃除を手伝うとお茶やお菓子などくれます!とても優しい方です!勝負事の神様である八幡様を祀っている神社です。
最近手水舎も設けたそうなのでちゃんと清めてから神前に迎えます!

何度か、行ってみました。行事じゃない時、、散策してみた事あります。新緑の季節だったので、気持ちの良い風が、吹いていました。何故か、安心しますね。行事の時は、にぎやかでしょうね。
