Sakuragi Tenjin

Sakuragi Tenjin, a small shrine in the Hongo area of Tokyo. It has been in its current location since 1691. For such a small shrine, the official homepage has a fair amount of information, including an explanation on how to make the thatched ring used during the summer and end-of-the-year festival.

The handwashing area has a faucet in the shape of a dragon.

For some reason, they had some chickens on the premises.

There was an old-timey water pump in the back.

The side gate.
