Mikoshi in the Building

I took these photos in funabashi shrine.
Mikoshi is miniature shrine.
You can see two mikoshi in the first photo.
Those are carried in parade of festival.
But usually those are kept in that building.

Those miniature shrines seem to be decorated in a rich way and to be very precious. Here for celebrations, people use to carry a statue.
PS: I'm glad to see you back. I was missing my everyday japanese stroll..

Handsome shrines! I hope we'll see them outside the building being carried in a parade someday!

I like the handsome, natural wood of the big shrine and the color of the smaller shrines. They remind me of nesting dolls.

Glad to see you back, Nobu! Missed your photos.
