Shot at Omiya Hachiman-Gu, a Shinto shrine in Omiya, Tokyo.
It was the season of the Seven-Five-Three Festival. Many people who had children of the ages offered prayers at Shinto shrines. I saw many such families in this shrine.
When I came to the gate of this shrine, I saw a nicely dressed boy, his mother and his grandmother standing there. All of them were silhouetted. They could come here to celebrate a traditional rite of passage. And the boy seemed to be happy.
