Will Mr. Right appear? ‘ANNOUNCING ENMUSUBI FURIN 2016’ by Kawagoe Hikawa Shrine in Saitama.

Let’s make good encounter with the right person! Kawagoe Hikawa Shrine of Saitama Prefecture is famous for the God of Marriage. ANNOUNCING ENMUSUBI FURIN 2016 has been held since 2014. The shrine is decorated with thousands of wind chimes for visitors to attach their wishes to the wind chimes. This year, new areas that weren’t there before have been set up.

The most beautiful mid-summer sound and view


The main area of ANNOUNCING ENMUSUBI FURIN 2016, Corridor of Marriage Wind Chimes, is decorated with 11 colours of wind chimes. The pleasant sound and lovely design has added quite a few colours for summer. After donations have been put into a box, prayers of the worshippers are written on the wooden strips and then tied onto the wind chimes to be answered. In addition, the Wind Chime Lane area has been added this year. Wind chimes with translucent colours are hung on a rack to create the special atmosphere.

To experience the art of light


River wishes in the sky are made with special lighting effects projected on to the holy water in the shrine, which is based on an image of a river in the sky. (19:00~) The summer night sky, sounds of wind chimes, birds and cicadas create a poetic ambiance. Ball-shaped bamboo ornaments, which fit the atmosphere of the shrine are attached with LED lights to go with the surrounding trees to create an even more romantic night scene.
