A ceremony commemorating pious Princess Chujo was held today in Taimadera, Nara Pref.
In addition to Buddhist rites, a procession of Boddhisatvas took place on a narrow catwalk inside the temple grounds.
The masks severely limited vision of the performers, and amateur saints were accompanied by seeing-eye helpers. But two “professional” saints performed a unique dance all the way on an elevated walkway.
