Visit by Minister of Defense of Spain

261105Spain.JPGOn 5th November, H.E. Mr. Pedro  Morenés Eluate, Minister of Spain, visited Tsurugaoka Hachimangu with H.E. Mr.Miguel Angel Navarro Portera, Ambasssador of Spain in Japan, and diplomats of Spain.

They attended a ceremony at the Main Shrine, and the Minister offered tamagushi, which is a formal way to show respect to kami.

One of our senior priests showed them around the precinct and introduced Shinto beliefs. The Minister listened attentively to the priest’s talk and asked a lot about the shrine and Shinto. It seemed the experiences at Tsurugaoka Hachimangu helped him understand Japanese culture deeper.
