Beautiful Autumn Leaves
On Oct 31 I guided a guest to Nikko from Tokyo. In Futarasan Shrine, we could enjoy viewing beautifully changing colors of autumn leaves.
From the gate. tanzaku （long, narrow cards） on which a wish was written were hung up on small round kaya-grass. We walked through the hoop like writing the number 8. This is called "Chinowa kuguri." This means "wash off the dirt of your body and ward off evil spirits."

You see 8 panels of the three wise monkeys. Among them this is the most popular three monkeys -- " See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil."
Whe returning to Asakusa, we could enjoy a nightscape including Tokyo Sky Tree and Asahi Beer Company.
