Steps In Meiji Jingu

Steps in Meiji Jingu

A figure descended the steps

Shot at Meiji Jingu, a Shinto shrine in Harajuku, Tokyo.

Because it was a week day, the precinct was relatively empty. Those who came to pray could pay homage carefully on that day. Besides, The deities enshrined here also could hear the wishes of the worshipers. I thought it stood a good chance of making a wish come true if people came on such tranquil day.

Thinking such shaggy things, I stood beside steps in front of the prayer hall. Meanwhile, a figure of a man appeared and started to descend the steps. He might have finished praying. He walked steadfastly. So he could pray without any restraint.
