Roadside Shrine

Roadside Shrine

Kyoto, Japan

I found these shrines on street corners
and they were fascinating...they memorialize relatives
I think...Shinto is a form of ancestor religion...and is combined with
Buddhism in Japan. dolls.kyoto2 160 copy.jpg This swatstika is a buddhist
symbol of infinity not related to the German Nazi Swatstika...
