Hello from Tokyo Bridal Salon.
I went to 亀有香取神社 Kameari-katori-Shrine located near kameari station
where has the atmosphere of good old town on the edge of Tokyo.
The kami(the god) of the shrine is known for worship the god of sport.
So that many athletes and football players of schools visit the shrine to pray.
And the 絵馬(Ema), ※Ema is a small tablet you write your wishes and hopes
Can you recognize the poplar animation
and on the two tablets in the picture above?
The wooden football goal was full of the Captain Tsubasa Emas.
There was a statue of “Ryo-san”
※The name of the main character of from the animation
「Kochira Katsushikaku Kamearikouen mae hasyutsujyo.」
※Ryo-san : The name of the main character of the animation.
Especially in Taiwan,
the animation is very popular and some Taiwanese come to visit the shrine to see the statue.
The way from the station to the shrine,
you will find many statues of different Ryo-san.
It would be fun to try how many statues you could find!
