Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken in Meiji Shrine located in Harajuku, Tokyo in autumn four years ago. Meiji Shrine is a shrine which deifies Emperor Meiji and Empress Shōken. The spectacle in which a traditional Shinto wedding ceremony is sometimes held here is seen. This photograph is taken the moment that families and relatives of both families who finished the marriage ceremony are gathering for all, and is taking commemoration photography. Thus, in long life, it looks only like a marriage ceremony and a funerary ceremony that a family wears the full dress, passes to all the persons concerned, and checks bonds. The woman who is standing to the front is a clerk of the shrine which advances a marriage ceremony.
