Thanksgiving in Deidesheim



Although Thanksgiving  day is not celebrated in Germany, the most important part of the holiday is not place but rather gratitude.

I have many things to be grateful for and I hope I can share in celebrating this with all of you.

Have a happy and meaningful Thanksgiving.

toyokawa inari shrine 豊川稲荷





豊川稲荷

toyokawa inari shrine
toyokawa, japan
(eastern aichi prefecture)



Despite the torii gate at the entrance, and the popular identification of its main image of veneration with Inari Okami, (the Shinto kami of fertility, rice, agriculture, industry and worldly success,) the institution is a Buddhist temple and has no overt association with the Shinto religion.
