Emperor Meiji was enshrined here. The great emperor who accomplished the Meiji Restoration was apotheosized. Although many worshipers came here, most of them were not interested in the apotheosis.

A mother was walking the courtyard in front of the main hall while she was taking her daughter by the hand. They were heading for the prayer's hall. I wondered what they made a wish to the divinized emperor.
