Photographer's Note

One of the the things I love about Japan is the preservation of ceramonies. You can seek it out, but if you hang around long enough, it will also come to you.

In this case, I heard a sound coming around the corner on this quiet street from our cafe and looked outside to see this little matsuri. A great surprise! Expecting something a bit longer, I took two shots and ran back into the cafe to grab my other lens. When I came back, the drums were faint again and the small group had gone around another corner and up a hill.

This was only the begining though - later that night a long ceramony in the shrine over the water had traditional music and dance. Absolutely magical.
