Ainu People Worshipping the Solar Goddess We spent some days in the Akan-Mashu National Park in the eastern part of Hokkaido, Japan. We invited three Ainu people to a photo shoot in their traditional regalia. The Ainu are indigenous people who are native to northern Japan, including Hokkaido and Northeast Honshu. Here they face the sun to worship Tokapcup-kamuy, the solar goddess. Her husband is the moon god Kunnecup-kamuy.

As part of their ancestral tradition, Ainu women had the custom of getting tattoos on their bodies, including their lips. For the Ainu, the tattoo was perceived as a symbol of beauty, a talisman. Nowadays face tattoos are often temporary, done with makeup.
