This portable shrine was going around the town from the early morning starting from the mother shrine and this evening just reached the sacred beach. After the dance performance by mediums, the portable shrine went in to the sea for purification. During thirty hours going around shallow parts, it went back to the mother shrine around 8 pm. The long one day would end.

it's incredible how long this ceremony lasts!! So your Note to the photo is very interesting, too.
I like the composition and the evening light with its special colours which make the image sort of luminescent.
VERY interesting tradition, interesting capture. Thanks so much for showing photos of what we, in real life, may never happen to see!
