Meiji Jingu sake barrels
Meiji Jingu takes pride in its towering gates that draw everyone’s attention. The grounds are spacious and you can be surprised to bump into another unusual sight inside – the rows of decorative sake barrels called kazaridaru. You may wonder why there are so many of them around. In facts, the barrels are donations made by Japanese sake brewers. This is how they try to please the deities at Meiji Jingu.
