Giant waraji - via A Japan Photo per Day -

Hozomon Gate, Senso-ji Temple, Asakusa, Tokyo

Even if today the traditional Japanese straw sandals - waraji - are still worn only by a few monks, the old custom of donating to the temple a pair of waraji is still kept. Originally, the tradition was about obtaining protection during travel and healthy legs.

From these donations, the most spectacular are the giant waraji that can be seen displayed at some temples, like the ones in my photo, photographed on the Hozomon Gate of the Senso-ji Temple from Asakusa. Donated in 1998, they are 4.5 meters long and are weighting over 400 kilograms!

Tokyo Sky Tree's giant shadow - via A Japan Photo per Day -

View from Tokyo Sky Tree, Sumida

Tokyo Sky Tree, opened to the public in May last year, with its 634 meters is the tallest tower and the second tallest construction in the world. But why the builders chose to make it 634 meters tall? They wanted a height to be easily remembered and, by using old Japanese numbering, “634″ can be read as mu-sa-shi, the name of the old Musashi Province - which included the tower’s location, the Sumida ward from Tokyo.

While visiting Tokyo Sky Tree, one of the views I enjoyed a lot was from the first observation deck (located at the height of 350 meters) towards the Sumida River. The tower’s giant shadow cast over the city is quite impressive and you can easily identify the first observatory, the second observatory (located at 450 meters) and the 184 meters antenna.

The Giant Lion Head from Namba - via A Japan Photo per Day -

Namba Yasaka Shrine, Osaka

If you visit the Namba district from Osaka, one of the most exotic food places in Japan, take a half-hour detour to admire a unique shrine, with a very special architecture: called Namba Yasaka, this little Shinto shrine features a stage located… in the mouth of a huge, 12-meters-tall lion head - about the size of a 4 stories building. The role of the giant head is, like any other koma-inu, to protect the shrine against evil spirits…
