Over 1 million people visit this shrine on New Years Day and this year I was one of them. The crowds are daunting at first but the peacefulness and order of a gathering this large is truly staggering to witness. I would like to return when it is not so crowded to spend time here because the Shrine seemed very interesting but I wouldn't have missed being part of this for anything. An unforgettable experience.
