Today on Kouri Jima Okinawa We Visited a Cave (Images)

It was a bit of a squeeze, getting in there.

But, there was lots of room inside.

Candles and small fires lit the place.

Not many people know about this annual event, that takes place on Kouri Jima.

So, I feel lucky to be invited.

 One of my friends was looking like, "What's gonna happen next?"

 Thanks to Map It Okinawa for taking this photo.

It shows, I knelt down in the cave like everybody else and got blessed.

An amazing place to have a spiritual excursion. It is solemn and private. Who would've thought?!
