[Hotoku Ninomiya-jinja Shrine]
The two bronze statues are the symbol of the shrine, and watch over everyone who comes to worship there.
Upper left: Many wooden votive plaques bear prayers about passing exams and achieving academic success. Upper right: The torii gate at the entrance to the ruins of Odawara Castle was built with timbers that had been used in a shrine in Ise Jingu. The timbers were given to this shrine when the one in Ise Jingu was rebuilt as part of the Shikinen Sengu ritual. Bottom: Hotoku Ninomiya-jinja Shrine nestles peacefully amid lush greenery.
