This is a town in Taipei, Taiwan, called Shezi Island. Every year after the Chinese New Year, there will be a night outing for the god of the earth activity, which is attended by local young people. This event is mainly to thank the god of the earth who blessed the people, but also the local young people To become a must-attend event for adults. The local young people are naked and carrying the statue of the god of the earth. The believers use firecrackers to welcome.

I am an amateur photographer from Taiwan and I hope to share the beauty of Taiwan with the world.
