On the mountain path

I met this Jizo/Ksitigarbha [one of Buddhist deities] on the mountain path to Jingoji Temple. I felt the statue was watching over the safety of travellers.

I was pleased to find this collaboration between the umbrella and the lantern which could create a delicate atmosphere at Gion Festival.

Impressive red

Umbrellas play very important roles in creating a traditional atmosphere at festivals as well as lanterns.
