Onbashira Matsuri (Kami-sha Yamadashi) 御柱祭 上社 山出し


066-ONBASHIRA120.jpg

In early April 2004, the Kami-sha Shrine held the Yamadashi ceremony where they hauled logs from the alpine forest. Along the way, they held the dramatic Ki-otoshi (log drop) down a slope and river crossing. These pictures were taken on April 3, 2004 by Jacek Kostrzewski. Also see photos of Shimo-sha Yamadashi.
