At the main entrance of the shrine, there was a copious amount of lanterns because the time of a festival was coming at the time of shooting. I wondered how many lanterns were hung there. The names of people who donated money to the shrine were written on each lantern.

The festival is ambitious. So the devotees might be large in number. If it increases in number in the future, the precinct was filled with these lanterns. I think it could be still beautiful in its own way.
