Greetings Reka, Bernard, A. Wheat and Carlos, Thanks for visiting and commenting.

Reka - I like the way they have begun to put articles of clothing. I don't recall seeing that 30 years ago.

Bernard - I am not sure what the purpose of the bib is....I saw it many places ;-))

A. Wheat - Good idea, maybe to keep the throat warm?

Carlos - Saludos Carlos, el rojo está realmente a cabo.

¡Salud!,

Rich

Greetings Arif, Thanks for visiting and commenting. Glad you like this. There are a great many stone carvings in the temples and shrines of Japan. Each one has a story, none of which I know :-((

Greetings Elisabeth, Thanks so much for visiting and commenting. I am glad you like the photograph. We found stone statues all over Japan with hats and scarves and aprons. That was quite interesting. Thanks again for visiting.

Cheers,

Rich
