I was fascinated by the young Japanese children dressed in the traditional kimonos, wondering about the shrines in the old capital of Japan, if nothing has changed in the few centuries since the shrines have been build. Although they were born in the 21st Century, they pray and pay tribute to their ancestors in the same fashion, every now and then taking a short break to admire and play with what nature has created for their enjoyment.

Location: Kamakura, Japan
