Prayer in Okinawa (Travel Photo Thursday)

The Photo above was taken at an exotic event called the Shinugu Matsuri, a religious ceremony conducted only once every two years in the northern mountains of Okinawa, Japan. Only men are allowed to witness the rituals conducted in the mountains. The women do their things later.

More about these men praying in the mountains may be seen in my Article THE SHINUGU MATSURI IN OKINAWA.
