Photographer's Note

This is the Japanese traditional archery as a ritual deed. Some big shrines conduct this ritual at the beginning of new year. This is called "the first arrow" in Japanese. They wear the original traditional clothes, caps and sandals strictly due to the rules.
This early morning I just knew today's event via internet and hurried up this shirine to witness. This was the first time for me to take shots.
