1 Land of the Rising Sun

Land of the Rising Sun

Posted on July 7, 2013 by team


It goes without saying, it’s Japan we call the land of rising sun, but it’s Yakutia where people really do meet the rising sun! There are thousands of them and they raise their hands towards the sun on the day of summer solstice. It’s hard to convey the atmosphere and energetics of the holiday with words, but it’s truly amazing.

It’s the rare opportunity to meet for those who live in different Yakut villages.
