境内

いくつかの大きな神社をつづけてたずねた。
東海地方を代表する神社だったので、
境内には凛とした空気が漂っていた。
その空気は、重厚な本殿の周囲に敷き詰められた砂利敷きの余白と
神域を境界づける大木の萌えあがる緑によるものだと思った。
いづれも社殿は古来よりそこにあるべくして建っている様だった。

 

PRECINCT [ Aug 19 2009 by AO ]


I visited several large Shinto shrines successively.
Since they are most famous shrines symbolizing Tokai district, a dignified atmosphere was drifting within each precinct.
I thought that those atmospheres might have been created by a blank of the gravel which were spread around each solemn
main hall of shrines as well as by a verdant greenery sprouted from  big trees which set a boundary for holy area.
It seemed as if each one has been destined to exist there through the centuries.
