Salt Shrine

'Shio-gama Jinjya' is shrineof thesaltthat hasthe mostpurifying salt in Japan. There are some way to climb, the most powerful visit is going by the main gate called 'Otoko-zaka' which means 'man slope'. The picture below is Otoko-zaka. I didn't find woman slope in the map though.
It was a sunny spot.
According to the book, this step purifies all your bad luck in the past and give a new luck...

Shishi-mai looks solemn.
It looks like there are salt on the steps.
