Title:

Japanese Kimonos, Fukuoka, Kyushu, Japan.

Caption:

In front of a Shinto shrine is a large bell. After donating a few coins for good luck, people ring the bell (large rope), clap their hands and prey. The long sleeves and elaborate colors and patterns of these kimonos are characteristic of the furisode style kimono, traditionally worn by unmarried women.
