Photographer's Note

As I mentioned before, this festival (Konomiya-Hadaka festival) is nominated as one the three oddest festival in Japan. The reason of oddness is that the sacred man (“The God Man ; Hadaka-otoko) insert the 8000 naked men crowd, pass through them and enter the special exit of the shrine. 8000 naked men try to touch him, as they believe that their dirtyness and uncleanness can be disposed if they touch him. So it is very difficult to pass through the crowd for the sacred man (“The God Man ; Hadaka-otoko). That is why several rescue team roped by the secretariat committee member, are dispatched to save him. Now the sacred man’s head is confirmed, so the rescue man is just dispatched. This position is the best position to take the decisive shot, so I kept this position 11 hours before.
