Figures At The Gate Of Omiya Hachiman-Gu

Dressed people at gate

Some silhouettes were at the gate

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.
