白龍神社の龍(愛知県名古屋市中村区)のGPSアート

GPS art of a dragon drawn at Nagoya’s most popular Hatsumode spot🐉✨

This GPS art course allows visitors to draw the Chinese character for “dragon(龍),” the animal of the Chinese zodiac, around Hakuryu Shrine, a Hatsumode (New Year’s visit) spot in Nagoya that is associated with dragons.
Hakuryu Shrine is a 15-minute walk from Nagoya Station, and is dedicated to the dragon god who presides over the rain that falls on the mountains, and his messenger, the white snake. The shrine is dedicated to the dragon god and his messenger, a white snake, who presides over the rain that falls on the mountain. It is also said to bring good luck in marriage, traffic safety, fulfillment of one’s wishes, and protection from bad luck.
Although this is a popular spot for worshippers, large crowds are expected in the year of the dragon (2024). Please try to avoid the crowds by paying a visit to the temple on the first day of the year 🐉✨
