  • What poster do you think is this? The caption upper the poster means "Get up early, or you'll be late". Is it for schoolchildren? or the cute lunch box? No, It's the poster of the shrine - 率川神社(Isakawa - Jinjya).

    率川神社 is the oldest shrine at Nara. Its main enshrined deity is female, it's rare. Therefore the shrine is the guardian deity of women and perhaps there are many posters which imagine female. I'm afraid that this imagination is denounced from the gender viewpoint.

    In this post, I'd not like to write such a difficult subject. I just wanna tell all over the world that there is the shrine which creates such a cute poster. It's very wonderful, isn't it?
