This shrine commemorates those who had died in the service of the Empire of Japan. Yet not all of prayers who visit here pay homage to the war dead. To pray at a Shinto shrine doesn't have a particular meaning in many cases. Most of worshipers didn't care about which deities were enshrined in the shrine. Neither do I. The point could be whether a response from the deities was there or not.

Many prayers prefer to draw the paper fortunes in the shrine. Many paper fortunes which were already read were bound on the wires.
