A magnificent shrine that is reminiscent of the old days when it was crowded as a port of call for Kitamaebune ships. The precincts are very well managed, and it can be said that they are still valued by the people of this area. The autumn leaves are beautiful at this time of year, which makes me feel really refreshed.
It is a thankful shrine that I met during my trip.

It's a fairly large shrine. The precincts are spacious and the main shrine is quite splendid, but personally, the tower gate is the most interesting point.

When I went to Mikuni, I visited for the first time ☺️✨ I went by private car, but it was saved because there was a free parking lot a little away from the shrine 💕 It is about 2 to 3 minutes on foot from the parking lot to the shrine Wonder? I think 😊 The big torii gate was really magnificent and had a solemn atmosphere ♪ The big zelkova tree next to the torii gate is so big that you can feel the power, and you will be overwhelmed by the greatness of nature 🙋🏻‍ ♀️ A river just past the torii gate? Parents and children with small children were fishing for crayfish ✨ I am impressed that nature is abundant 😌 After visiting the main hall, I got a red stamp at the awarding office on the right side of the main hall 🙆🏻‍ ♀️

In Mikuni, only Mr. Narita has been there, but I visited Mikuni Shrine ⛩️ for the first time.
There is a very splendid Zuijin gate and there is also a 600-year-old keyaki tree that makes you feel the history.

I was able to refresh in the solemn precincts. There is also a parking lot for worshipers, which is convenient.
