150-Year-Old Akihabara Shrine Holds Birthday Event for Steins;Gate's Luka Urushibara
The latest anime installment "Steins;Gate 0" is now streamed on Crunchyroll
To celebrate Luka Urushibara's birthday on August 30, Akiba Shrine, a 150-year-old Shinto shrine located in Akihabara, holds a special collaboration event with the Steins;Gate franchise for nine days from tomorrow to September 7. The shrine is one of the models for Yanagibashi Shrine that he lives in the story (another famous model is Yanagimori Shrine also in Akihabara).
Akiba Shrine also celebrates the 130th anniversary for its relocation this year. During the period, the shrine's hall, which is usually an off-limit area, will be open for public, and Japanese tea will be offered to visitors for free. In addition, a special Ema (votive horse tablet) for the 130th anniversary and a limited tin badge featuring Luka's miko (shrine maiden) outfit illustration will be also given.
