|2002 TORIGOE FESTIVAL part2
|When a shout of the low tone which
seems to howl of people carrying it on the shoulder and the portable shrine
which are incredibly huge with lot people appear in a leisurely small alley, air of the place changes suddenly.
In the appearance which progressed by a strange atmosphere, I felt God or a demon or some strange spirit. When a portable shrine becomes the night,
it is lighted a paper lantern with a bow-shaped handle, it is accompanied a large paper lantern hung on a pole which parishioners raise
and goes back to Torigoe-Shinto shrine. It is called "a night festival of Torigoe", and it is called an ancestor of a bank light festival.@©back
