Komodaru at the Meiji Shrine

After a typhoon that happened the day prior, I decided to go to Shibuya on a fine summer day. I took a train and can easily maneuver myself to my destination. As many know, Shibuya is the home for the Meiji Shrine. A shrine dedicated for Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shoken.

It’s such an oasis in the middle of all the hustle and bustle that Shibuya got to offer. But once I entered the gate, everything turns so tranquil and serene. I instantly thought that I wasn’t in Tokyo anymore. After walking the paths leading to the shrine, I was in shocked because of the amount of Komodaru (Sake barrels donated by the people) put on display. It all has different writings and design. Here’s a bit of a peek!
