Yasukuni Mitama Matsuri

Filed under: — Andy @ 5:51 pm

Saturday was the Mitama Matsuri at Yasukuni shrine. I went with my friend and her friend who was visiting Tokyo for the weekend. The place was packed with people so the walk to the shrine took a long time. Yasukuni shrine honors all of Japan’s war dead, and the lanterns at this festival had lots of names of the dead written on them.

There was also some omikoshi.
