This day, I was at Kanda Myojin, a Shinto shrine in Kanda. It had been a long time since I had been here. In the precincts of the shrine, a magnificent building had been erected without my knowledge. I heard it was a cultural exchange center. I could see tourists from abroad, so it seemed that this place was still swallowing up a lot of worshippers. The temple grounds were crowded again that day, but wandering around the grounds was not very interesting. There were a lot of people there, but not much that made me want to take a camera. Maybe it's because I've been here so many times.
After leaving the Zuishinmon gate, a short path led to the Nakasendo. The building at the end of the path had a show window with a portable shrine inside.
On the other side of the building, through the glass, I could see the Zuishinmon gate that I had just passed through, as well as a double-decker bus that somehow looked like it was driving in London. I don't know why it was parked in front of the shrine gate. Maybe I thought it would be nice to see something Japanese and something Western side by side. The woman walking behind the glass also had a difficult look on her face, as if she understood my feelings.
