a basin in shrine, Kamigamo shrine

a basin, Kyoto
This is a basin installed at the entrance of main buildings in shrine. Before we go and pray in front of main building, we will wash your hands and mouth by this big wooden spoon, full of fresh water. Because gods in shrine dislike the dirty.

By the way, we don't set this spoon to our lips directly to wash our mouth.

And why you are surprised?.Your Japanese blog for me is the best, without any doubt!!!.

Each day, you show to us a little corner of your beautiful country, through your exquisite and fantastic vision, the result are those beautiful photos that you daily take, and even more since you also teach us a part of your fascinating culture with your special comments. I love the work that you and all your Daily Photos colleagues do.

Thanks to you Macky, to keep on doing this fabulous space. Congratulations!!!! you deserve it!!! =O))

A huge kiss Bravo Macky =O)),
