You will find unexpected fun through my articles!
I went to Oujima island located in the southern part of Okinawa Prefecture.
It is connected to the main island of Okinawa by a 100m bridge.
If you drive around Okinawa,you will find God sanctuaries everywhere.
One of the characteristics of Okinawan God sanctuary is that there is nothing artificial about them.
There are no magnificent temples, no beautiful sculptures or paintings.
There is just nature, a small space under the trees, a cave, a beach, spring, etc…
You will feel very refreshed and directly senses a mystical atmosphere due to the absence of man-made structures.
I think we are moved only by huge buildings, sculptures, and solemn paintings by artistic motives, not by sacred motives.
How do you feel without them in these churches and temples?
This is the sanctuary called Ryugushin.
The distinctive rock is a landmark.
There were people meditating here.
Are they inspired by something?
How about this ?
Why don’t you experience this atmosphere in Okinawa?
You might feel something here!
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
