Shirayuki, the god's horse in Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine

This year, 2011 is the 1800th year of Sumiyoshi Grand Shrine.

There are many events going on now.

When an event is held, yes, Shirayuki, the god’s horse, is here.

The “former” Shirayuki is now retired, and new Shirayuki was dedicated on May 8, 2011, that is the 23th year of Heisei, which is just a few days ago.
