Silhouttes Of Lanterns In Yaskuni Jinja

Lanterns hung at entrance

These lanterns were hung at the entrance

Shot at Yasukuni Jinja, a Shinto shrine in Kudan, Tokyo.

Many lanterns were hung at every entrance of this shrine. It was time to go to shrines to make wishes for the coming year. And some festivals which celebrated the new year held within several days. So the precinct was busy. Irrespective of the crowd on the ground, the lanterns stayed silent in the air. Although I thought they could hear the bustle, they didn't adjust their opinions and behavior to please the worshipers. They were marking the new year on their own way.
