Yeah, I know, it's another shrine! Sorry. I've got another one coming up tomorrow as well hopefully.

This shrine was within the walls of Hiroshima castle.

I took a picture of the water and the ladles as it is customary to wash your hands by pouring water from the ladle onto your left hand with your right and then vice versa. It apparently cleanses you before entering the temple or shrine.

I love that lower shot - especially the ripples and reflections against the stone

Thanks. You know, some of them turn out quite good in the end, which is quite pleasing when all I'm doing is going round with a cemera and clicking away like a mad one!
