Hie Jinja shrine main building

Hie Shrine (Hie Jinja,日枝神社)

What fascinates me about Japan is how tradition and modernity are incorporated seamlessly in both social behaviors and architecture. Hie Jinja (Shrine) is a good example of the later. It is located in a modern sector of Tokyo, very close to the Japanese government buildings (Diet), and yet, the shrine offers an oasis of serenity amist the turbulent modernity of Tokyo.
