After getting off the train at Daikanyama Station, I walked through a narrow street and came to Hachiman-dori. The street is named after an ancient Japanese deity that seems incongruous in the fashionable town of Daikanyama. Judging from the name, this street should lead to a shrine dedicated to Hachiman deity. But I couldn't think of any shrine dedicated to Hachiman deity in this fashionable town. I wondered which Hachiman shrine this street was leading to. As it should be, the Hachiman shrine I am referring to here is the Konnoh Hachiman-Gu Shrine, which is located across Meiji-dori toward Namiki-bashi Bridge.
Not having come here to go to the Konnoh Hachiman-Gu Shrine, I took a quick left down Hachiman-dori. Crossing the intersection with Old-Yamate-dori, I saw a large glass window in front of me. Behind the glass window was a white cube where a solo exhibition was being held.
Looking through the glass, I could see several paintings on display. It seemed to be an exhibition of a popular artist, and there were many people coming to see the artworks. What occupied most of my vision, however, was the clear reflection of the Daikanyama Kouban-mae intersection on the window glass.
