Serene morning at the shrine

I would like to share a couple of more photographs out of decent amount that I took at Fujiyoshida Sengen Jinja shrine (富士吉田浅間神社), which I mentioned in my previous blog with a photo (here).

It was a cold morning in early spring season and base areas of Mt. Fuji remained snow unmelted on the roadside.

The photos were caught the path of main (front?) approach of the shrine from the big arch to enter.  I looked back toward the arch and caught the scene at the middle of the path to the shrine behind me.  Number of lanterns aligned on both side of the path wore green cap of moss, which made good contrast of reserved lanterns in colours yet made beautiful harmony with trees behind them.

It was a cold morning in early spring season but the crisp air shook me in the head and gave me a pleasant morning at the shrine to give my greeting to the god.
