Japan 2016: Day 2 (Celebrating my 33rd Birthday at the Yasukuni Shrine)

#Konbanwa!!! Hi guys, I wanna thank you all for your well-wishes on my 33rd #birthday! Salamat sa effort at oras. This year has been extremely challenging for me professionally but things happen for a reason. Important thing is how we persevered and weathered the storm, indeed, it was a humbling experience and I’ve moved on. Life is too short and I choose to be #happy! Salamat sa mga kumapit at nakapitan ko especially this past few months, mahal na mahal ko kayo! On a less dramatic note, this year’s #lanternfestival didn’t happen because of the weather but nevertheless it’s all worth it traveling to The Yasukuni Shrine! It was an overwhelming experience, pagod maglakad but ang ganda nung shrine! Walang paper lanterns that flies but okay na itong mga bamboo lanterns! #Japan will always have a special place in my heart! 🇯🇵🇯🇵🇯🇵 Again, salamat sa #birthday greetings ninyo, will go to bed (later) with a big #smile on my face! Dōmo arigatō gozaimasu! 🙏🙏🙏 | #HETHLERized #Japan #WhenInJapan #Travel #Vacation #Shrine #YasukiniShrine #Temple #JapaneseTemple #JapanseShrine #TravelDiaries #MeTime #Instagood #VSCO #VSCOcam #VSCOphoto #Igers #IgersPH #IgersManila #Travelgram | IG: http://www.instagram.com/hethler

Whilst controversial for enshrining A-Class war criminals, the Yasukuni Shirine was built near the ‪#‎ImperialPalace‬ that makes the Yasukuni Jinja a commanding presence that helps define ‪#‎Tokyo‬’s cityscape 👌 | ‪#‎YasukuniShrine‬ 🏮🏮🏮| ‪#‎HETHLERized‬ ‪#‎WhenInJapan‬ ‪#‎YasukuniJinja‬ ‪#‎JapaneseTemple‬ ‪#‎JapaneseShrine‬ ‪#‎JapanHangover‬ ‪#‎Japan‬ ‪#‎Travel‬ ‪#‎MeTime‬ ‪#‎ILoveJapan‬ ‪#‎IgersPH‬ ‪#‎IgersManila‬ ‪#‎IgersPasig‬ ‪#‎Instagood‬ ‪#‎TravelGram‬ ‪#‎TravelDiaries‬
