It was getting close to dusk, and the dimly lit approach to Setagaya Hachiman Shrine was even dimmer than before. Standing at the top of the stairs, I looked at the approach and saw two torii gates standing on the not-so-long path. One was large and the other small, like a father and son.
Families dressed in formal attire were walking along the path. A young girl was also dressed in a holiday kimono, so the family must have been there to celebrate the Shichi-Go-San festival. They seemed to have just finished giving thanks to the local deity and were on their way home.
