Entering the Shrine

Posted by Picasa
This is the path to the shrine. The tall concrete structure is a tori. It is decorated for shichi-go-san. There are stalls of food along the way. The two women in the middle of the picture are wearing kimono with its traditional jacket.

There are lanterns overhead. The names of sponsors are on the lanterns.

This little girl was walking toward me. She is in the picture above. Her mother said I could take her picture. She is three years old. You can tell by her size but also by her kimono. She's wearing a vest instead of an obi, sash.

Here is another three-year-old girl wearing a kimono.

This is the back of the lanterns.
