Flashback Friday: Meiji #3

Back in February and March I published two Flashback posts (here and here), in which I introduced my free day in Tokyo in 1993 when I visited the Meiji Shrine.  In the first of those I described the circumstances leading up to my visit in some detail.  Here’s my third from that day.  More will follow in future posts.

    I think this was the only shot that I got with two of the children together. I still feel very privileged to have been able to observe these lovely people so closely.

  3. These children are precious! Thank you for sharing this part of your Meiji Shrine visit.

    Thanks, Adrian, it was as if I were invisible–what a wonderful feeling!

  6. I adore Meiji Shrine! When I moved to Japan, it was one of the very first places I went. My husband and I made several trips there – it became kind of a routine for us and it was wonderful! (Except for those horrible crows/huge blackbirds!! Yikes!) Thanks for this post – I was just reminiscing the other day.

      Thank you, Anne, I don’t remember any crows from the day of my visit, but then, I was rather distracted by other local megafauna. It is, indeed, a magic place of ageless serenity, and I’d love to return.
