Noro: An Okinawan Priestess
This image comes from my files dated June 2013 and, was just processed today.
Things have a habit of sneaking up on me this time of year. I get extremely busy.
The event above, happens at the conclusion of the Itoman Hare or Dragon Boat Races.
For some reason, the races are taking place early than usual and, I won't be attending.
My calendar, has already been filled, going into the month of July.
The Itoman Hare happens to kickoff at 0900 tomorrow !
Historically, these dragon boat races, signal the end of Okinawa's rainy season.
To see more about these rituals, have a look at some previous posts:
