Photographer's Note

We have just only 3 days more for 2010.
That means only three chaces to post within 2010.
I have joined and obserbed many festivals in Japan.
I would like to present "three" of the most impressive festivals for me for last three days.
First one is this "Somin festival(蘇民祭)".
I guess this one is much influenced by animism too. Several brave men climb on the firewood and shout and prayed for the prosperity/health/welfare and others under -5℃ condition with snow of night.
That seems to be a life and rituals in the very primitive old times.
This was so impressive for me.
