Sumisaka Shrine festival

This is an autumn festival held in a small town,Haibara in Nara prefecture.
The local people are holding up a small mobile shrine, parading around the town.
I visited the town to see the festival November 3.

                                                                                        This parade starts around II a.m and finishes at 4p.m.

                                                                                                            They prepare for the parade,using thick ropes.

                                                                                                          The parade continues.

                                                                                                    This friendly man is one of  the  members of organizing the festival.
