Sannouhieda Jinja (shrine). Some charms are being burned. This is part of the shinto-buddhist tradition in Japan - as more and more charms are given to the temple by the faithful, the temple becomes overcrowded. The temple master disposes of the charms periodically in this way. Akasaka, Tokyo Neighborhoods, January 2006.
