Two groups of men and a horse are dragging a festival car (not shown) past the entrance to the Miya Temple on a feast day. The name "Miya" literally means "shrine," and is a shortened word denoting the Atsutajinja Shrine. It is one of the most important shrines in Japan because it holds one of the three divine symbols of the Imperial throne. Now, Nagoya City has grown around the shrine to become the third largest city in Japan.
