This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

Little men in the snow, 道祖神

Firmly wrapped up and wearing warm knit caps they look so sweet.
Somebody is looking after them...

道祖神 or dousojin are deities at street corners, mountain passes, near bridges. They protect pedestrians, travelers, pilgrims and those in "transitional" stages
