I could see silhouettes of a family walking along the dimly lit approach to Setagaya Hachimangu

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.
