Meiji Jingu at night

Por kirai el 31 de October de 2008 en Traditional

Today was the 50th anniversary since the shrine Meiji Jingu was rebuilt after it was destroyed during the Second World War. For the celebration they did not close the shrine at 5 pm as usual, today Meiji Jingu it was opened until 8:30h and there was special illumination everywhere. It was really beautiful!

Those are people, but with the blue light and a long exposition they look like spectrums

  1. is this a one-time event only? If not, I plan to drop by this Sunday night to take pictures.

  2. Hey
    Thanks for this beautiful pictures…I like the ghosts most.

  3. Wow, this is awesome.
    I love HDR shots, I love temple shots and I love night shots, so this is really something for me. ^^
    To bad I’m not in Japan right now, I would have also liked very much to make some pictures.

    Last year I was lucky enough to accidentally drop by the Hamarikyu-en (?) during an illumination event. I didn’t have my tripod with my but I managed some nice shots laying the camera on rocks and posts.

    I don’t know why, but all the pictures on my blog are suddenly gone since this afternoon. Normally you can view them here:

  13. Wow, very through, thanks. My girlfriend is actually Otaku and spends an inordinate amount of time over there dressed like a French maid. Oh well, at least she gets paid to be there.
    thanks again
