A balloon floated above the young woman

This shrine is dedicated to the war dead. Besides, A-class war criminals are also enshrined here. Everybody those who died in association with the war become a deity in Shintoism. Many people also visit this shrine at the beginning of the new year. Yet most of them take no notice about that. It is just an annual event.

When I visited, the precinct was crowded. Among the people, I found a girl walking with a smile. And a balloon was floating above her.
