Omi Shrine Festival

So, I promised that I’d post pics from the snippet of the Omi Shrine Festival that I caught this weekend, after my triumphant return from Okinawa. There were apparently a lot of costumes and a parade, but I just saw the ceremony at the end, where they dismantled the portable shrines and had a short bout of flute/drum music and dancing. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
