Souls of the Dead

A clandestine shot of one segment of one wall in Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo, where hundreds of thousands of pictures of those who died in war for Japan are exhibited, each reflecting a 'soul' that is interned at the shrine.
Controversially, the 'souls' of Japan's convicted and executed war criminals are also interned here and duly exhibited on the walls. Catalogues are available for searching for pictures by name.
