A blog of Japan. You can see Japanese daily life and scenery through my camera. All photos are taken in Funabashi city and surround.

Happy New Year Nobu! Best wishes to you and your family. A beautiful photo, question; what are the little white 'lightning bolts' hanging around the stage? I have seen them before and do not understand them.
Thanks Valeria.Thanks Sandra, I think those are sigh(mark) showing holy place.
beautyful costumes and masks!that is "very japanese", if I dare to say..Has it something to do with theater NO, or is it something very particular for the New Year?
Happiest New Year to you Nobu! Best wishes for 2009.

I would have loved to watch this. This structure is especially for performances? Do all big shrines have something like it?Nice to see you posting again, Nobu. I hope you had a good holiday. Happy New Year too!
Kagura is performed not only in new year but also in some festival.I think that stage is for kagura.
