Exploring the spiritually inspiring Shinto shrine in Tokyo’s vibrantly overcrowded district of Shibuya. Situated side by side, the contrast between ancient tradition and commercialised modernity could not be more prominent. A true clash of eras and ideologies.
Discovering a very humbling sensation overcoming us as we step through the large wooden gate and wander through the miraculously quiet forest towards the Meiji Shrine. Here - inside the walls of the shrine among the trees - we remain in silence for some time to admire and adore the modest, yet powerful exhibit of an era long gone.
