interlude – Ohtsuchi Festival 1992 (#2)

I received a shipment  of belongings from Japan on the weekend which included this great photo from Ohtsuchi Festival in Sep. 1992 of me carrying the shrine in the sea. Up until this year the festival Omikoshi ‘parade’ finished by carrying the shrine into the sea within the fishing harbor in order to give thanks to the Kami of the sea.
