(434) Last chance to see


For the last two months, the enormous red paper lantern of Sensoji temple’s Kaminarimon (雷門) gate, one of the (few) landmarks of Tokyo had been taken down and a photograph had been hanged in its place, apparently to compensate for its absence. Today the lantern will return ceremonially so the picture featured today is a rare document of the gate without it.

(For a bigger version of this picture both in color and black and white, check my "Japan Arekore" set on Flickr)
