Photo Journal: Shrine devastation


The tower gate and worship hall at Aso Shrine in Aso, Kumamoto Prefecture, are seen collapsed in this photo taken from a Mainichi Shimbun aircraft on April 16, 2016, in the wake of a magnitude-7.3 quake that struck the area early that morning. The tower gate is designated as an important national cultural asset and one of Japan's three key shrine tower gates. (Mainichi)
