I was standing on the top of the stairs and watching the torii which stood at the entrance this shrine. In spite of being in the center of this city, its atmosphere was tranquil. Although there were many Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples in Tokyo, most of them were lingering in the silence. This shrine was also same.

An older woman passed by me and descending the staircase. And she left the sacred areas and vanished into the urban center.
