The prayer hall was seen at the end of the approach

Shot at Akasaka Hikawa Jinja, a Shinto shrine in Akasaka, Tokyo.

After the cluster of the wedding ceremony disappeared into the hall, the precinct was wrapped by the silence again. The music was not heard anymore. And no one who wore a traditional costume was seen there. I could see some worshipers and all of them wore common clothes. I felt as if I came back to the modern age. And it looked like a dream I saw some people wearing a traditional costume until a while ago.

After walking around, I stopped at the entrance of the Shinto shrine. The approach stretched straight to the hall. And the prayer hall was seen at the end of the approach. Some Torii stood and trees were planted along the approach. Unlike other famous Shinto shrine in Tokyo, this precinct was idyllic. Not so many worshipers seemed to come here.
