Important note: New Friend Exchange
This entry is a part of activity that I joined through Sunflowerkat321's blog, who decided to play after visiting The Kitchen Bitch Ponder's blog.
I would modify the rule a little and here we go:
I promise to send something related to Japan to the 5 people who leave a comment on this post and who, in turn, promise to send something back to me. The rules are that you need to make the items personally and send within 2011. I will contact you by private message for your snail mail address.
If you only want to comment on this entry but don't want to join this activity, that's fair enough. Just leave a comment as you normally do.
If you find it interesting, want to join the activity and to swap things between you and me, please express your intention in your comment.
Part two of "Sacred horse" and "Ema (絵馬)" in Shinto religion. Ema is a substitute of the real sacred horse that used to be donated to the shrine in the past. This bronze statue of the sacred horse shown in this photo was donated by an individual who must have been rich and serious about religion. If you want to be a shinto geek, please visit Lina's blog in which I have described Ema in more detail.
If you are more into live horse action, here you go.
