Setsubun Mantoro

On Tuesday A and I went to Nara to the Kasuga Grand Shrine to see the shrine's 3,000 stone and bronze lanterns lit up for Setsubun which marks the transition from winter to spring. It was a really lovely sight to see, and as the lanterns are only lit three days a year, I felt really lucky to see them all glowing.
