There was an old-fashioned eating place in Yasukuni Jinja shrine

Following the slope away from the Kudanshita station, a big Torii appeared on the top of the slope soon. It was an entrance of the Yasukuni Jinja shrine. This shrine is dedicated to those who died for the country. A wide and straight approach stretched from the Torii to the prayer hall. And there is a statue of Ōmura Masujirō who established the Japanese army in the middle of the approach.

Going passing by the statue, a small building stood on the edge of the approach. It was an eating place. Because many worshipers came here, the eating place like this was built in the precinct. It was made with woods and old fashioned. The soft-serve ice cream was sold even it was winter. And the coin-operated public phone was placed under the eaves.
