Photographer's Note

They are "Shinto priests", just after the praying and moving to another sacred places. Usually inside the big shrines there are several sacred places which they should pray. They are classified with several grades by the experiences and so on, blue one is higher than red one. Several red gates are called as "Torii" in Japanese, which is gateway at the entrance to a Shinto shrine. Outside the shrine area, there are very busy and chaos by the energies portable shrine ("mikoshi") but inside there should be sacred and solemn in fact.
