Meiji Shrine in Tokyo

POST #    2432

I'm back from my travels and now recovering from jetlag. Fun times! Expect lots of photos from Asia. I'll try to keep them in somewhat of a chronological order.

These pictures are from the Meiji Jingu, a Shinto shrine dedicated to the souls of Emperor Meiji and his wife. Their spirits were enshrined there on November 1, 1920, but the original building was destroyed in World War II. The current one was finished in 1958. The shrine is now a popular place for weddings (the photos with the red parasol). As you can see, thousands of prayers are left on plaques by visitors to the shrine.
