Kagawa Meiji 1890s Unknown
Two pilgrims at Kotohira-gu, popularly known as Konpira-san, a Shinto shrine in Kotohira, Kagawa Prefecture. It is said to have been founded in the 1st century. The shrine’s deity apparently protects travelers, especially seafarers. The shrine is famous for its long approach: 785 steps to the main and 1,368 to the inner shrine. The main shrine building seen on this image was built in 1877 (Meiji 10) and looks virtually exactly the same today.
