Kylläpä Meijin temppeli ja sen tilukset on pidetty hämmästyttävän hyvässä kunnossa! :D (Big Grin) 
Ja komea on temppelin piha-aukiolle johtava Torii-portti. Nod

I can't say I expected any less. Meiji was the first emperor in a long time to claim what rightfully belongs to an emperor of Japan. The outcome was modernization and a surge in exports. It is quite natural that Japanese would do their best to keep anything that has a the Meiji name on it, as you say, "in an astonishingly good condition".

Of course, Meiji also enforced the strictest censorship in Japan's history. And gradually warmed up to the idea of Christianity not being totally illegal and punishable by death.

Wow! O_o Never really thought I'd receive a reply like this to one of my comments,
especially to one written in my native tongue for that matter! I think I've fainted. 
First: if you truly have learned the Finnish language, I'm pretty impressed! :D (Big Grin) 
Second: your information has been enlightening, thanks for sharing it. Nod

Do you actually travel all the way around the world from Finland to Japan or something, or are you maybe perhaps you just stock and release them in unspecified dates?

No, I don't travel a lot. I've been to some places and taken quite a lot of photos on my trips.
I visited Tokyo in 2013.
