Meiji shrine

I went to the Meiji shrine today, and I have to report back, as it's really been the most moving experience I've had thus far. I can't say anyone else would feel the way I did, but for some reason the mix of natural scenery, Japanese atmosphere, Shinto, and the expectations I've had about my trip created an emotional reaction.

There were several marriages going on while I was there. I guess this must be a common thing in the shrine, as there was one nearly every half hour.

I won't try to explain how I felt today - instead I'll just put up this picture that I really enjoyed.
