Mountain Shrine Architecture
The Shinden (innner sanctuary) is the principal sacred space of the shrine complex. A visitor to the shrine should first present prayers in the Shinden (pulling on the bell pulls and tossing a coin into the offering box) before socializing. The Reido ancestor hall is immediately adjacent to this hall (on the other side of the sliding doors on the left.)
This picture shows the Shinden on the morning of the Great Summer Festival in July.
