Worshipers in Shoin Jinja
Shot at Shoin Jinja, a Shinto shrine in Wakabayashi, Tokyo tetsuOzawa

A big curtain was hung on the eaves of the main hall

This Shinto shrine is dedicated to Shoin Yoshida and his fellows. Shoin Yoshida was a person of thought and a spiritual head of the Meiji Restoration. He was also known as an educator. And many his fellows played an active role in the government after the overthrow of the Tokugawa Shogunate. Hirobumi Ito, the first prime minister of Japan was also one of his fellows.

The big curtain on which the swastikas were drawn was hung on the eaves. And two worshipers were just bowing in front of the prayer hall.
