Omizutori お水取り at the Nigatsudo sub-temple within the Todaiji grounds. Nara, 2006. For two weeks in March, the monks and temple staff carry large "taimatsu" (bundles of pine boughs) along the veranda. Scores of people gather below in the belief that the falling embers will bring spiritual benefits.
