Shinto god (kami) or yōkai (supernatural beings).
Fudo Myoou statue.
This is the approach to the shrine.
How to pray
Many people pray to god.
There is a special rule of pray.
People pray and walk around a circuit between 2 stones
for 100 times.
We call it “Ohyakudo-mairi”
I ate Akashi-yaki
On the outside, it looks like takoyaki,
but has a softer and more eggy texture than takoyaki.
You eat it by dipping it into a soup.
It is nice snack!!
Around Ishikiri shrine is close from Osaka city and perfect for a walk.
See you on our next trip!!
