In a corner of the wide approach, many sake barrels were piled up. And the barrels were shining in the soft light coming through the trees. These barrels were filled with the rice wine and they were dedicated to this shrine by the breweries. According to the labels, they came from all over Japan. I didn't know whether the Meiji Emperor and Empress who were enshrined here liked to drink sake or not.
There were also whiskey barrels on the opposite side. If they had a snoot full to drink sake, they also could drink whiskey.
