      Shinto wedding service at Gokoku Shrine
    by IreneMcKay

This shrine was at the bottom of Maizuru Park so although it was not on our to do list we popped in and had a look. There was a Shinto wedding ceremony going on inside when we visited.

We also enjoyed watching the children pester their grandfather's for 100 yen coins so they could buy bird food from the bird food dispenser and feed the pigeons.

    We were lucky enough to see weddings in Tokyo. Really different to the western world!

      We saw a lot at the Meiji Shrine in Tokyo. One of the things we love about Japan is that its traditions are very much still alive and flourishing. All the best, Irene
