Visiting a shinto shrine (how to pray, what to do) 明治神宮で初詣☆
Explore the culture of Japanese shrine visits with me as I go on my first-ever Hatsumōde (初詣) - the first shrine visit of the new year, to Meiji Shrine in Tokyo.
I learned how to wash my hands at the Temizuya (water basin area), how to pray (bowing, clapping), and all of the other things to do when visiting a shrine such as buying good luck charms and writing on the ema (wooden plaque for wish-making).

See how to properly wash your hands and pray (not the greatest quality, but you'll get it)
