VIII.
Temple of Ha-tshu-man-ya-tshu-ro at Shimoda.


In the little town of Simoda, temples form the prominent feature. The most conspicuous are the "Dio-zenge" and the "Day anye." Buildings connected with the former have been assigned by the Government as a temporary residence to foreigners until bettor accommodations are provided.

The temple of Ha-tshu-man-ya-tshu-ro, the third in size, is very picturesquely situated. The gate represented in the engraving No. VIII., opens on an alley of noble pine trees, at the end of which stands the temple. The form of worship in it is the Sintoo, or, according to Burger, Siountou. T his is a philosophical religion, similar to that of Confucius, consisting only of moral doctrines, mixed with some mystic notions about spiritual life.

The two buildings forming the temple, contain each one single spacious hall, without any images or sacred vessels, but the walls are adorned by pictures representing memorable events in the lives of worshippers, such as shipwrecks, hunting adventures, or battle scones. On the pictures are sometimes hung offerings of hair, sacrifices after some hairbreadth escape. Arms, bows, arrows, lances, etc., etc., are also deposited in this temple.

Connected with it is a school, in which reading, writing, arithmetic, and some history and geography, are taught to children of all classes.

Two largo statues in stone, near the temple, under the trees, resemble old Egyptian idols in shape, as well as in costume.

The two stone monuments in the foreground are lanterns, which are lit up on important occasions.
