Photo Essay: Torii downed by earthquake

Main Gate completely demolished

Two entrance gates, or torii, of our local shrine, Ogikubo Hachiman, were damaged by the recent earthquake.

 

 

 

 

 

A tree also hurt

sign of the times

 

 

mighty posts have fallen

 

 

 

 

 

Inspecting the scene

side gate also hurt

 

Maybe this one can be repaired?
