A Walk to the Shrine

All the pictures in this post were taken with the Fujinon XF16-55mmF2.8 lens mounted on a Fujifilm X-T1.

There is virtually an infinite amount of beautiful temples located in Tokyo. In fact, there are so many that it does not take much walk outside of the beaten paths found in every travel books to find some little known but beautiful ones.

I just found out the one below last week-end. Although mostly ignored by foreigners, it seems to be a very famous power spot among Japanese.

I consider the pictures below as “draft” pictures. I’ll take the time to come back here in a better light, if possibl after the lights have been turned on. Add some reflections of those lights on the wet path of it has been a rainy day beforehand, and this might be the best combination for this specific location…

I had no idea this shrine existed before last week-end, and I think it would deserve to be better known. It’s such a beautiful place I have made it the background image of my phone 🙂 If you liked this post, please consider sharing it with your friends on social networks, and keep in touch with me on Twitter 😉

    1. Hi Jordan,

      Thanks for your message. This is the Mabashiinari shrine in Tokyo, located near the Asagaya station. The stone Torii gate with an ascending dragon and a descending dragon is supposedly famous. It’s a bit far from everything else though. If you like shrines, you might also want to visit the Kameido Tenjin shrine, if you are near Tokyo Skytree at some point.
