Keiko toured us to her favourite shrine. The Atsuta shrine. After wandering around Nagoya castle for hours, we made our way into this shrine just before sunset.
We all felt the immediate peace while walking the shrine grounds. I love the Torii that greeted us in the entrance. No orange colour this time. We did the usual hand cleansing and I was getting used to it.
The little girl from the picture above did not want to leave without having her picture taken in front of the flower exhibit. Her mother wanted to leave. She stood her ground and cried when her Mom finally caved in. We were passing her when Keiko started talking to the little girl in Japanese. I asked Keiko if we can take her picture and the little girl immediately stopped crying and started posing. She is so kawaii!!And I love her kimono.
