About this photo

Shot in the city of Kawagoe, Saitama. I found a small Shinto shrine when I walked around the streets. A tore stood at the entrance and some zigzag-shaped papers called Shide were hung. There were no worshipers in this shrine and these Shide were waiting for someone coming while they were waving in the soft breeze.

Shide is a symbol of the sacrament in Shintoism. Because Sumo was a shrine ritual originally, the Shide was attached to the rope which was worn by the highest rank in Sumo during the ring entering ceremony.
