Photographer's Note

This is another odd festival, "Kurama Hi("fire") festival. This is nominated as the three oddest festival held in Kyoto. Evening of each 22 Oct, the village people living around Kurama Temple in Kyoto bring torch(from small by children to big by adult) an d make procession to Kurama Temple. Unfortunately we had a heavy rain at that night. Even thought the participants get wet, this festival continued on schedule. In fact I saw this festival with my dear Malgorzata (emka) but we could not see almost nothing as so much crowd. This year I have gotten the special permission via a special route and could get good shutter chance.
To Malgo : I get the revenge !
