七福神めぐり

>a tour of Seven Gods
Sennyu-ji Temple 泉涌寺 has several small temples in its precincts. Each of Seven Gods of Fortune 七福神 are enshrined in each small temple. People make a tour of these small temples this day, and pray for health, longevity, prosperity of business, etc. Every temple sells auspicious ornaments associated to the God. I bought some. I'll show you tomorrow.

These little snowflakes give a very nice atmosphere to this superb shot. Magnificent shot. Good day.
