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.

Once you enter inside the Temple photography is forbidden out of respect to the worshippers.

There are over 1000 traditional Japanese weddings held within the temple each year. If you visit on a weekend you will see a number of different ceremonies being performed.
