mushishi - mushi

A picture

Today I went to see the Jidai Matsuri, the Festival of the Ages, which was a roughly two and a half hours long procession of people in historical costumes. I took a million (or at least 145) pictures, and I haven't had the time to do much of anything with them, but because people asked for pictures - here's one, at least! (Click for a bigger view.)

This was the only woman in the procession who was on horseback, and she was dressed as a warrior - I'm so curious about her! Her attendents were women too, while most of the others had men leading their horses. All the other women in the procession were either on foot, or in some kind of chariots.
