Yasaka Shrine, Kyoto
(same place, different angle here)


  1. Wow.

    That image really sums up Japan for me.

  2. I've never been to Japan, and although I've travelled around China and South Korea, I've never seen anything like that shrine. What do the lanterns signify?

  3. Thank you. :)

    The Traveller, the lanterns don't signify anything deep and meaninful I'm afraid. They're put up during festivals and the names on the lanterns are the sponsors. Not unlike the ads around a football field.
