Half a year gone

A woman steps through a Kaya wheel, a ring of woven grass, at a Shinto shrine in Tokyo on Friday. The wheel marks the passage of the first half of the year and is used for prayers for the second half of the year. It also marks the beginning of summer at some Shinto shrines in Japan.

Have one of these at the shinto shrine by my house. Always feel like eating a donut driving by it.
