Happy Pair Under The Red Umbrella

Bride and groom coming through gate

The bride and groom also came through the gate

Shot at Akasaka Hikawa Jinja, a Shinto shrine in Akasaka, Tokyo.

The Gagaku, a traditional Japanese ceremony music, echoed in the precinct. Two men playing Sho and Hichiriki passed by me and headed for the prayer hall. Watching them, a bridal couple following a Shinto priestess appeared and also came through the wooden gate. The reason why the music was played was a wedding ceremony was just held. The happy pair walked under the old-fashioned red umbrella which was put by a Shinto priest. And they wore a serious face. The Tsunokakushi was seen on the bride's head.

The precinct was wrapped by the awesome silence. The only sound I could hear was the Gagaku. The cluster of the wedding ceremony moved forward to the hall with a calm mind. And they disappeared into the prayer hall finally.
