For the Gods 「神様へ」

There is a Shinto shrine, called Kamigoryo Shrine, not far from my office and a few weeks ago they had their annual festival honoring the gods of the shrine. This is a close-up of one of the elaborate palanquins in which the god rides as he (or she) is paraded through the neighborhood.
