For the Gods 「神様へ」

GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 4 June 2012 in Lifestyle & Culture.

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.

This is so far removed from my Christian background and beliefs, but the beauty of this cannot be denied.
