Photographer's Note

I took this picture in Jishu-jinja shrine inside of Kiyomizu-dera temple. Jishu-jinja shrine is a shrine for pilgrims to pray for their love life. This picture shows a popular game to test if you have a good love life. As shown in this picture. A lady was walking, with her eyes closed, from the stone from the far end to the stone at the foreground.

The love stones are placed 18 meters apart. I don’t know the official meaning to the game. People believes that if you can start with your foot against one stone and you can end to touch the other stone with your eyes closed without assistant, you will find your love or you will have a bright future with your current lover.
