This is a small shrine, which you can see just across the street in front of Prefectural Museum of Art. It is small, but proud of its long history of about 1150 years.
The shrine often holds small events, and when I visited, there was a flea market called “Nomi-no Ichi” of the spring being held.

This flea market has a rather special tone, providing a quiet and inconspicuous atmosphere due to the nature of the venue. It dealt with organic foods, antique-like products, old-style Japanese toys, stationaries, pretty plants such as cactuses, and handmade goods for babies. And hot coffee, Pork and vegetable soup, tea and some bread were also available.

And it was so nice having happened to see an owl.
