It is a aspect of pop culture of Shibuya.
In this article I introduce “Serenity” in the Metropolis Shibuya.
During my shooting graffiti of Shibuya,I discovered these serenity places by chance.This discover was also big surprise for me.
This photo is Toyosakainari shrine.
It is said that this shrine is built 1707.
Originally it was located nearby Shibuya station,but it was moved here in 1961.
