In the Shadow of the Gods

This is the entrance gate at Kawai Shrine (河合神社) located on the grounds of the Shimogamo Shrine (下鴨神社) and is dedicated to a goddess whose special province is the protection of women. We hope she flies to the rescue of many of the country's women who are now suffering.

The situation at the nuclear power plants in Fukushima Prefecture has worsened considerably, presenting the possibility of catastrophic damage.

We feel helpless in the face of such a disaster, but one thing one can do is make a donation to the Red Cross or to a charity of your choice to help provide much-needed food, water and medical care for so many needy people throughout the northern part of Japan.
