A stone basin and wooden spoons, at Kamigamo Shrine in Kyoto

A stone basin and wooden spoons, at Kamigamo Shrine in Kyoto
The basin and spoons are usually put at the entrance of Japanese shrine to make our hands and mouths clean with pure water. After cleaning parts of our bodies, we pray in front of main building, where gods live, in the site, because the gods dislike dirty things very much.
