Actually the term Kitsune no Yomeiri [狐の嫁入り] refers to the occurrence of rain occurring during brilliant sunshine, which is said to occur a fox bride is going through the woods to the house of her fox groom. Sometimes during festival occasions, shrines would stage the “fox wedding” as well, and that is when we would get to see the interesting couple wearing the fox mask. (via Timeline Photos)
Japanese artist Takahiro Iwasaki created an awesome and incredibly detailed scale replica of the Byodo-In Temple that appears to be floating in space atop its own reflection.
The Byodo-In Temple is a beautiful 10th century temple near Kyoto, Japan. This version of it, entitled Reflection Model (Perfect Bliss), was built between 2010 and 2012 using Japanese cypress, the same material used to build the real thing back in 1053. It is currently on exhibit as part of the 7th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art in Queensland, Australia.
