Hi dear Takero. The dancers themselves look otherworldly since their faces cannot be seen.A mysterious and yet colourful event. Reminds me of Kurosawa's last film, which was a collection of ghostly stories. My favourite part was of the little child witnessing the Fox Spirit procession through the forest. Regards. Klaudio.

well captured movement and very special moment. I am intrigued by unusual outfits as well as the whole ceremony - I wish you wrote more about the ritual. Great colors, POV and composition.
Have a nice day

An intriguing image, not being able to see the faces of the dancers immediately makes me want to know more and see more of this ceremony. It seems like a very mystical and magical performance, and your (as always) excellent control over the depth of field really adds to that effect.
Great shot again, thanks for sharing.
All the best

de belles couleurs chaudes pour cette image aux mystérieuses danseuses masquées. J'aime particulièrement ces photos de festivals si pleines de vie qui nous font découvrir les coutumes du Japon. Une très belle photo.
Merci Takero, bonne journée.

nice the view of this mysterioous dance performance, with the specific hats to cover the face of the dancers.I like their colourful cloths as the good presentation.

"Night dance to invite ancestors' souls", sounds very intriquing and your image also with the classical colorful costumes and very unusual hats, covering their faces adding to the mystery.

Hello dear Takero-san
Interesting picture with precise focus on the lady on the centre and a gentle bokeh on the other dancers...what I actually liked a lot is the distinct sense of motion which comes from the blur of the dancers on the left...Very dynamic shot!
