Priest blessing a car

Happy New Year to all you Pocketcultures followers!

This month we are looking at means of transport in different countries here on Picture Postcards. I’m starting things off with a snap I took in Japan of a priest blessing a car. This was at Hakusan Shrine in Niigata, Japan.

If you have a photo of some form of transport in your country that you would like to contribute, please consider placing it in our Picture Postcards of the World Flickr group. We’d love to see your pics!
