The end of the war

As stated before, I was coming home from the Nagoya Castle Festival and stumbled across the Gokoku Temple with a bunch of laterns burning. I had read something previously about a temple that commemorates the end of the war and lights 4800 lanterns in honor of the war dead of Aichi. I was a little bit concerned about taking pictures, but then I noticed so many others taking pictures that I decided it was OK. This, of course, was on August 16.
