This door is from the Meiji Shrine in Tokyo. It is one of many beautiful doors and door details that I photographed during our exploration.
This place holds a special memory for me. We visited Meiji Shrine when adopting our son in 2018; Hiro was only six weeks old at the time of our visit. Outside of the shrine, we stopped to get some takoyaki (a battered seafood ball—often octopus) for our lunch and the elderly man behind the stall scurried out front to see our new son cradled against Marcie’s chest in the baby carrier. He was so effusive: “Happy, happy, happy!” he cried, beaming ear to ear. We felt very welcomed!
I’m posting my door inspirations from around the world to celebrate the release of The Guardians of Zoone! 🚪🗝️
