Parading sedan chairs is not a ceremony exclusive to Taiwan. This practice can also be seen in Japan. Portable shrines, or mikoshis, are often paraded in Japanese ceremonies. Before ceremonies, the deities of the shrine are invited onto a mikoshi. Worshippers then parade the mikoshi through neighborhood alleyways. Depending on the region in Japan, ceremonies can have very different features and atmospheres. Some ceremonies are orderly and solemn, while others rock mikoshis back and forth. For foreign visitors, participating in the ceremonies will definitely be an unforgettable experience. The ornament shown in the picture is a model representation of a mikoshi.
