A crowd of 1,300 people performing yoga in front of a large torii gate at Heian Shrine in Kyoto. The June 18 gathering of aficionados, planned by a local organization and the Indian consulate for Osaka and Kobe, came three days ahead of International Yoga Day. “It gave me a feeling of peace to spend this period of calm together with so many other people,” said Takashima Misa, a Kyoto resident who has practiced yoga for eight years.
