Children enjoy the cherry blossoms while babysitting. Several hundred plum and cherry trees were planted at Yasukuni Shinto Shrine, and today there are said to be about 1,000 cherry trees there. The arrival of the cherry blossom season is predicted on the basis of the cherry trees at this shrine. The main hall enshrines a holy mirror made of ebony by Goto Kosuke and embellished with imaginary birds, dragons, chrysanthemum flowers and paulownia leaves. The window panes were made in Germany.
