Another wedding ceremony was being held at Meiji Jingu Shrine today. Of course, the weddings held here are Shinto-style. As I was wandering around the large plaza in front of the shrine, a group of people who had finished their wedding ceremony came into the plaza. Led by the Shinto priest, then the bride and groom, followed by their relatives, the line of attendees walked quietly. After the ceremony, the attendees were returning to the building. They were silhouetted and their shadows were clearly visible on the ground.
As it was a Shinto ceremony, the groom wore a montsuki hakama and the bride wore a white kimono. But most of the attendees were wearing western clothes. I could see a glimpse of high heels in their silhouettes. Nowadays, most people don't wear kimono unless they are getting married.
