Sake Barrels at Hachi Shrine
Here is another shot from Hachi Shrine here in Kyoto from the other night.
These are sake rice barrels placed on the stage of the shrine. I don't know if they are actually filled with sake. I bet not.
Sake (Japanese rice wine) is used in Shinto religious rituals in a similar way that wine is used in some Christian religions.
I like the painting of the horse at the top of this photo.
