Two Cameras

Woman holding two cameras

The woman had two cameras

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

Leaving the garden in the precinct, I came to the courtyard where the prayer hall stood. Unlike the garden, it was crowded as always. Many people came through the wooden gate and walked toward the prayer hall as if they were attracted. There were also foreign tourists along with Japanese worshipers.

The foreign tourists from Asian countries became marked in recent years. The Shinto shrines are seen only in Japan. Once, many Shinto shrines were built in the territories occupied by Japan. For example, the place now the Grand Hotel Taipei stands was the precinct of Taiwan Grand Shrine during Japanese rule. Yet most of them were demolished after WWII. The Shintoism couldn't take root outside of Japan.

So the Shinto shrines could be exotic to the foreign travelers. The woman in this photo seemed to be impressed. She held two cameras and released the shutter many times.
