This is a shot from Hase-dera shrine in Kamakura. In the forefront is the incense burner. In behind are the many statues representing babies lost through miscarriage or abortion. Very poignant... many of the statues are clothed and flanked by flowers. And in the shrine, instead of the traditional offerings of oranges and other foods, there are teddy bears and children's snacks...
