Shinto purification in Nara 4

July / Juillet

Arrived to the shrine. You can see some parts of the torii, behind the choyuza. Worshippers are supposed to wash their hands and mouth with its water before by taking some water with a water lade before cleaning its handle and entering the shrine.
Finalement arrivés au temple. Vous pouvez voir une partie du torii derrière le choyuza. Les croyants sont censés laver leurs mains, leur bouche avec de l'eau prelevée par une louche, puis d'en rincer le manche avant de pénétrer dans le temple.
