Food for Friday: Sake and Meiji Jingu Vistor Center
Across from the wall of wine is the casks of sake for Meiji Shrine.
I couldn't help but take photos of some of the art work on the casks. Also, if you keep reading you can see where you can get a bite to eat at the shrine.
Really enjoyed seeing the different brewery labels. Mount Fuji is very popular.
While many have an older look, there were a few more contemporary like the gold crane flying in front of the red sun.
Sakura blossoms also were represented.
Just a little way in from the South Entrance there is a nice gift shop, museum and cafeteria. Luckily the gift shop was open so I did my souvenir shopping there. Because it's hard to travel without bringing back something for those close to you.
They call the cafeteria a cafe, but it's okay. It was really nice to get warm food and warm tea. Just a bite but considering I hadn't had much warm food since arriving in Japan it was much appreciated.
