Photographer's Note

The new year lease by Shintoism of Japan is called "Shime-kazari."
The pine to which God dwells in a gate is decorated with the New Year of Japan.
Therefore, Shime-kazari is decorated in order to prevent an impure thing advancing during seven days of New Year when God is descending.
This is decorated by the door of the house which becomes the boundary of a sacred place and world.
