COMPLEX & STRIDER

Shrine maiden of the traditional religion(shinto) of Japan. This is a dance to pray to God.

These are miko shrine maidens performing a special Shinto Shaden Kagura dance ritual during the annual On-Matsuri festival, a traditional Shinto religious festival held at the Kasuga Wakamiya Shrine in the ancient Japanese city of Nara, Japan. In older days, miko were considered shamans, but today they take on a more lighter role as priestesses or ceremonial duties.

穂高神社 大遷宮祭(9)

Mo, without karaginu(??!?)  Looks like a ceremony- maybe at a shrine like Ise???  It's like, uwagi and mo, but no karaginu jacket...  ???  Info, anyone?  They appear to be priestesses (ceremonial objects in hand), so this may be a priestess-only thing?

Uwagi Mo, used on less formal occasions. Note the absence of Karaginu.
