Many barrels were piled up in the approach to Meiji Jingu

Many casks of Sake, an alcoholic beverage of Japanese origin, were mounded beside the approach in Meiji Jingu. 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.
