INFO

In the beginning of Yukari ChikuraŸ??s photo book Ÿ??ZaidoŸ?�, a mysterious mist slowly clears, page by page, to reveal a mountainous landscape. This is the stage in which the Zaido, a sacred local rite dating back to the early 8th century, is performed. With each new photograph, Chikura slowly takes us with her on a journey into the depths of the mountains and into a spiritual world. The Zaido takes place on the second day of each new year. In addition to Yukari ChikuraŸ??s afterword, Ÿ??ZaidoŸ?� also features explanatory captions, a historical map, and a small booklet with the mythological story at the heart of the ceremony (all texts included in Japanese & English translation).p>?˜
