Shot at Meiji Jingu, a Shinto shrine in Harajuku, Tokyo.
The courtyard in front of the prayer's hall was surrounded by the wooden cloister. And many lanterns were hung under the eaves of it. Few worshipers came to it. And I always thought it was a nice place to watch other worshipers while keeping the distance.
Because this shrine was dedicated to the Meiji Emperor and Empress, the Imperial crest of the chrysanthemum was designed on every lanterns. I saw a little boy walking on the other side of them.
