Like the Noh masks that have gone before us, the Namba Yasaka Shrine has been 500 years in the making. The lion may look frozen in time, but when you view it from different angles, it looks animated, just like a Noh mask. When viewed from above, it looks menancing, with the eyebrows taking on a more sinister dimension. From below however, it could almost be benevolent, watching over the mere mortals below. This is one of the coolest and funkiest shrines in Japan.
