Last Class of the Semester (Yoshida Class)

Today was the last class of the semester. Since we read about “climate” and “global warming” in class, we decided to visit the recycling station near Doshisha University.

What kinds of things can we recycle?

Afterwards, we walked a little ways over to Shiramine Shrine. Shiramine Shrine is home to the god of “mari” (balls used in games) and sports. “Kemari” is a sport where you can’t drop the ball, so this god can also be a god of studying.

Everyone offered a prayer together at the shrine, and the students collecting goshuin got a goshuin. I wonder what everyone prayed for?

Next was Seimei Shrine. It is dedicated to Abe no Seimei.
