I believe gates similar to this are common with Shinto shrines where purification is also a focus.
My response to prompt #231, Nagoshi (half year’s end festival) for the Carpe Diem June 2013 prompts, which are centered around traditional “kigo” or “season words” for summer. Nagoshi (half year’s end festival) is a late summer kigo.
June on Carpe Diem has been divided into three different seasons of traditional summer kigo: Early Summer, Mid Summer and Late Summer. The informative prompt and responses to this prompt can be found on the Carpe Diem Blog.
You are invited to respond to these prompts as well.
Have fun. Explore haiku. Aloha—Rick
