Shrines are very common in Japan. In Kyoto, every 500m away there is a temple or a shrine. I cann't help but to think about Paul, walking in the city of Athens. A city full of idols! A religious people group, but missing the heart of worship. You worship this God, but you don't really know him. So I want to tell you about him. Act 17:23
God! May your light shine forth! Open their eyes and make them see!
Meiji Jungu Shrine: Meiji Jingu is the Shinto shrine dedicated to the divine souls of Emperor Meiji and his consort, Emperor Shoken. Emperor Meiji passed away in 1912 and Empress Shoken in 1914. After their demise, people wished to commemorate their virtues and to venerate them forever, and so this shrine was constructed, and their souls were enshrined on November 1, 1920.
