Hakone Shrine & Yokohama landmark

Next day was a trip the The Hakone Shrine. It is the custom to go there in January to pray for a good year. The shrine was magnificent nestled in amongst huge pine trees.

Not often you see a new Shrine being built. This one has a big shiny copper roof.

The Landmark Shopping Centre & Tower. Spectacular views of Tokyo and Yokohama  from the 69th floor that is reached by the fastest elevator in Japan.
