Smiling Face In Otori JInja

Wooden mask smiling

The wooden mask was smiling

Shot at Otori Jinja, a Shinto shrine in Iriya, Tokyo.

Because it was a weekday, its precinct was deserted when I visited. When I came in front of the prayer hall, I found a big wooden face. It was smiling happily. Maybe it was delighted because it found a worshiper coming.

It is believed that people become smart when they stroke its forehead, people get the foreknowledge when they stroke its eyes, people get money when they stroke its nose, people succeed in love when they stroke its left cheek, people remain healthy when they stroke its right cheek, people protect to lead to misfortune when they stroke its mouth and people settle everything nicely when they stroke its chin. So I stroked its entire face. And I thought I wanted to give it to a conflict zone.
