Hikawa Shrine in Kawagoe            

風鈴回廊 (The Fuurin Corridor)

The Fuurin Corridor is the symbol of En-Musubi Wind Chimes.

888 Edo style wind chimes are hung with poeple's wishes written on the strips of paper.
People hear nice sounds of wind chimes.

At nights, the Fuurin Corridor is lit up, and it gives a beautiful and fantastic view.

By the way, the number eight is written "八" in Japapnese Kanji. Number eight is a lucky  number in Japan, because the Chinese character "八" shows the two lines extended as they  go down, "suehirogari" in Japanese. It means "more and more" and becomes better and  better as time passes.
