Chuzenji Kannon-ko and Jizo Nagashi

Buddhist rituals that took place on June 18th in Chuzenji (Nikko).

Monks leaving Godaido Hall at Chuzenji Temple.

Throwing Jizo papers into the lake (Jizo Nagashi). Mount Nantai in the background. The guy in black with a small Nikon is a reporter from the local paper - Shimotsuke Shimbun. Needless to say, Dr. Trouble (who took this picture) ended up in his photos and in the newspaper. LOL!

Next time I come to Japan I must come to Nikko! It looks so beautiful:) I always seem to have the same problem with my boyfriend he always seems to be in the picture somewhere, sort of like " find Wally":)
