Cleansing before entering the Meiji Jungu Temple

Cleansing before entering the Temple


Before entering the Meiji Jingū Temple, worshippers stop by the water fountain to cleans themselves. There are bamboo cups which are taken in the left hand to begin with and water is poured over the right hand. They then pass the cup to their right hand and pour water over their left hand. Water is then poured into the mouth to finish the cleansing ritual.
