Country of the gods, innit

Not so long ago, the hapless ex-Prime Minister of Japan Mori Yoshiro declared "Japan is a country of gods with the Emperor at its center". He took a lot of stick for saying this. I don't think he was really right about the latter part, but as to the former, who can say the old duffer was far wrong?

If you look carefully, you can see some yellow and pink gods in this scene (Hint: they're hiding among the green gods.)

These ghastly scenes of witchcraft and superstition are to be found in the bamboo grove where I cut my culms. The one below is a well, while the one above is a..., is a... umm, I'll be damned if I know really.

If I had a productive well on my property, I think I'd want to celebrate it somehow too.
