Sake Barrels For Libation In Meiji Jingu

Sake barrels in Meiji Jingu

Many barrels were piled up

Shot at Meiji Jingu, a Shinto shrine in Harajuku, Tokyo.

Many casks of Sake, an alcoholic beverage of Japanese origin, were mounded beside the approach. These casks were offered to the deities enshrined in this shrine from sake breweries in various regions in Japan.

Although most deities in Japan loved alcohol, I didn't know whether the Meiji Emperor and Empress who were enshrined in this shrine loved alcohol so much. The emperor bestowed if he couldn't drink to the dregs.
