品川神社 Shinagawa Shrine

品川神社 Shinagawa Shrine Tokyo, JapanOne of the great things about Tokyo is that you never know what you’re going to find tucked around the corner from you.

品川神社 Shinagawa Shrine Tokyo, JapanJapanese Shinto shrines can be found all over the city and most of the time you stumble upon them while out and about on an entirely different mission.
