Wall Paintings in Yaizu City!

SN3O5043

Yesterday I was ambling along streets in Yaizu City in search of the manhole covers I had found out on the net when I reached a small bridge over the river crossing the city into the sea (yaizu City is one the major fishing harbors in Japan!).

The pavements in the vicinity of the bridge were decorated with some interesting tiles I was going to take pictures of when I noticed paintings on the wall along the pathway of the very quiet river full of Japanese carps!

SN3O5033

The paintings had been ordered to real artists by the city to help promote its tourism!

This particular series depicted the Yaizu Harbor Festival, a major one in Shizuoka Prefecture which is held every year!

SN3O5035

The local fishermen must be really looking forward to it!

SN3O5036

O Mikoshi/Portable Shrines!

SN3O5037

At least one lady seems after all to be part of it!
I will have to investigate!

SN3O5048

As I amble along I found out that the river was in fact crossed by three bridges to allow the many avenues to go through and had a glimpse at another painting on another wall!

SN3O5038

A legendary hero in a fiery scene with an erupting Mount Fuji in the background!

SN3O5044

There were more to be seen from the third bridge!

SN3O5039

They were all about and ancient legendary hero with hints of religion!

SN3O5040

Confrontation!

SN3O5041Offerings!

SN3O5042

Praying for succor!
