There is a Japanese zelkova tree by the shrine office of Funabashi Daijingu.
I hear that the tree was damaged by cannonball in the Boshin War(1868-1869) and was dying, but that a new bud came out from the side of the trunk and grew up to new trunk
Now, the tree is still alive like that.
A view of Honcho-dori Street from the rear approach of Funabashi Daijingu.
There are steep stone steps between the second Tori gate and the first one.
Long ago, they could see the sea from the approach.
This old lighthouse which stands in the precincts of Funabashi Daijingu shrine worked until 1895.
When I looked up the lighthouse, I felt that it looked much taller than it actually was against the blue sky and white cloud.
