Shot at Yasukuni Jinja, a Shinto shrine in Kudan, Tokyo.
A Japanese national flag was shown at the gate in the precinct of Yasukuni Jinja. It was a National Foundation Day. It is said that the first emperor of Japan, Jimmu, assumed the throne about 2600 years ago on this day. For comparison, the ruling emperor was the 125th emperor.
It dates back before the foundation of the Republic of Rome. So it is hard to believe. And most of Japanese don't think it is a historical fact. In the first place, the reality of Jimmu was doubtful in the historical science.
