Tokyo – Part 6: Shrines

I visited two shrines while in Japan. One was the Meiji shrine next to Yoyogi park, and one was a random one near Misawa Air Force base. There were a lot of differences (e.g., crowds, size, etc.) but also several similarities (e.g., structure, votive tablets, lanterns). Unfortunately, I didn’t have a chance to do much other than look quickly so I’d like go learn more about the customs and importance of the shrines.
