Photo of Day 2: Meiji Shrine in Shibuya, Tokyo.

Photo of Day 2: A torii, or traditional Japanese gate, at the entrance to the Meiji Shrine in Shibuya, Tokyo.

 

This Shinto shrine is dedicated to the spirits of Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shōken.

 

An amazing forest of 120,000 were donated by people from all across Japan when the shrine was built.

 

It's simple, peaceful and very relaxing. There is. Beautiful simplicity to the architecture and the more religious customs.
