It is high tide and boats bring tourists to the entrance of the shrine complex. Behind the red torii a stage is built out into the water and filled with people, as well as the corridors with hanging lanterns. On the left we see the sutra repository Daikyôdô and a pagoda and to the far left the Horai no iwa with visitors enjoying cherry blossoms.
