Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken in the precincts of a temple in Meiji-jingu. Meiji-jingu is the shrine which deified Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shōken. In response to Emperor Taisho's sanction, founding Meiji-jingu on May 1, 1915 was announced by the Department of the Interior notification. The ceremony of completion was held on November 1, 1920. It is the shrine which received the popularity of the Japanese who respect the Imperial Household in memory of Emperor Meiji who built the foundation of modern Japan. I entered this shrine from Yotogi entrance, and arrived at the oratory on that day. When I are walking along the courtyard in front of hall of worship, I met heavy rain suddenly. I moved to the near corridor having a roof, and I sheltered from the rain for a while until it stopped getting down. The person in character with a traveler had sheltered under the corridor as preventing the rain like me.

The chrysanthemum flower seal in the upper left of a corridor is the Imperial Household's crest.
