Chugen-mantoro (the Lantern Festival): Kasuga-taisha Shinto shrine (Nara)
The candle lights of numerous hanging lanterns were quietly wavering in the vermilion-lacquered corridor of the
Kasuga-taisha Shinto shrine
to solemnly celebrate the Bon Festival.
These gilded bronze lanterns were donated by the people worshipping the Kami (deity) of Kasuga to pray for the prosperity and fortune of them and their ancestors.
