令和元年 7月27日 京都初夏の旅

貴船神社 階段灯篭

テレビCMや雑誌、SNSなどの幅広い媒体て見たことある人が多いかと思います!
それぐらい有名な場所 階段です(^^)
実際に訪れるとなかなか急な階段でした❗️
これも実際に訪れないと分からない事です!
多くの人が階段の下で待機して、人が居なくなるのを見計らって写真に収めていました(^_^)
混雑時はなかなか難しいかと思います❗️

きふね神社随一のフォトスポットです。お参りなさる方が引っ切り無しですので、人の写り込みを気にしてたら時間ばかりたっちゃいます。春日灯篭というのが正式な呼び方のようですね。奈良の春日大社で使われていたのが始まりで、春日大社にちなんで、火袋には鹿が彫られています。
竿と呼ばれる足の部分が長くて、高い位置に灯をともす火袋がある、背の高い灯篭です。
