太鼓橋が渡りにくい形になっているのには、次の二つの理由があります。
1.参拝者が足元に注意しながら渡ることで、気持ちを落ち着かせてから参拝できる。
2.外敵に攻められた時に、進入口を通りにくくする。
1:The first reason is to calm people before they begin to pray. People visiting Masumida Jinja could not have entered in a hurry to pray. People would have had to cross over the bridge slowly, carefully and in a state of calmness to prevent themselves from falling off.
2: The second reason is that attackers / enemies would have found it difficult to cross over the bridge.
