More information:

Thousands of people flock to the controversial Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo during the annual Mitama Matsuri, one of Japan's biggest Obon festivals. Mitama Matsuri is a mid-summer celebration of the spirits of the ancestors of Japan's war dead. The entry walk is decorated with 40 foot high walls of more than 30,000 lanterns, and many Japanese come to pay respects to their lost relatives and friends. The carnival atmosphere and impressive lanterns also attract many tourists and travelers.
