Photo of the Day: Ohenro-san? Obo-san? Hatted Man in the Street

imageFrom statue to flesh and blood, a hatted figure two days running.

So I don’t *actually* know if this fellow is indeed a pilgrim (ohenro-san) or priest (obo-san). In fact, since he’s not wearing white, he probably isn’t a pilgrim. And judging by his footwear (woven from plastic rope), he’s probably not a priest. But, since his dress somewhat suggests one or the other, that is what I’m imagining.

You never know what you’re going to see in Kamakura…
