Today’s Japan Photo: Mitama Matsuri 御霊まつり

Today’s Japan Photo: Mitama Matsuri 御霊まつり

For Today’s Japan Photo, we take a look at the beautiful lanterns that shine brightly in the night at the Mitama Matsuri 御霊まつり – a mid-summer celebration of the spirits of the ancestors that is held at Yasukuni Shrine (靖国神社). The lanterns are hung along the 40 foot high walls along the entry walk.
