Miyajima Wedding

Miyajima wedding japanese couple

Japanese wedding @ Miyajima

Sometimes it can be difficult to keep a smile on your face when it rains on your wedding day. Having your wedding at one of the three most scenic places in Japan (日本三景 or Nihon Sankei) can help. The location was Itsukushima Shrine (厳島神社).

Japanese Wedding

The sign in the back has nothing to do with the wedding. It says Sanno Soreisai (山王祖霊祭) which is a festival of sorts for ancestral spirits. You can see photos of that event on the Hie Jinja website here.

Harajuku Wedding

Two weeks ago we set off for Togo Shrine (東郷神社) in Harajuku to check out the flea market. This Tokyo flea market was supposed to take place on the first and fourth Sundays of every month. As we approached we knew something was wrong as the place was nearly empty. A small sign (in Japanese) said the flea market had been discontinued as of the beginning of 2010.

As we were leaving, though, we spotted this wedding party.

Mom, or perhaps mother-in-law, had some last pieces of advice for the bride.

They made their way up the stairs and into Togo Jinja…

…where their wedding took place moments later.
