New Years Prayers on a Pole

This past Friday I flew up to Tokyo for what was supposed to be a side job.  Since I got into Narita so late, I stayed at a business hotel near the airport.  I woke up the next day to find out the job was cancelled.  With that news I decided to go ahead and go back to Okinawa that same day.  After making arrangments, I had a few hours and decided to go to the Narita-san ShinShoji Temple (about a 15 minute walk from the hotel).  It what surprisingly crowded but I was able to get a few shots without a bunch of people in the photo.  There are some that I took intentionally with people, but I'll get to those later.  This one is isolated to one spot.
