Meiji Jingu (March 15th, 2011) Inner Courtyard

Tokyo 3-15 65

As you can see, the inner courtyard of Meiji Shrine was almost empty.

Tokyo 3-15 66

Very empty.

Tokyo 3-15 64

Part of the outer shrine hall Gehaiden. One of the few buildings that was open. Due to the low light and out of respect, I did not take more photos of it.

Tokyo 3-15 68

While one would think that because there weren't many people around it would be easier to take photos, I actually felt more conscious of doing that. Plus the events at that time created a strong feeling of respect for a place so sacred to the people of Japan that it affected how I felt.

As I walked back there were a few more people heading towards the shrine.
