一月の風景 #6

>a January scene #6
A big tuna is dedicated to the shrine by the fishermen to pray for a good haul. People stick a coin on th tuna to pray for being with money sticking on themselves. Many many people were making a line to do this ritual, so I just took a picture and gave up to do it. I can't be with money this year. Ah !

You have some very quaint traditions Hiro, I'm sure another lucky charm will put you in the money this year.
