投稿日:

Hello! I am Madoka.

Thank you for coming on this page.

I am very happy to have this chance to inform you about Japan.

My English and sentences probably be wrong, please be fast and loose. ( ^v^)/

And I appreciate you for giving the opportunity of my English practice.

Today I will introduce the flow of praying at a shrine .

The flow of praying at a shrine

Step1 : Go to a shrine

Step2 : Make one formal bow at a 90-degree angle at every “Torii“.

At that time, please avoid standing up in the center of the path.
Because the center line is for Gods.

Step3 : Purify your body(hands and mouth) at a shrine’s purification trough .

Because you should do away with filth and purify before praying to Gods.

Washing tunes are “Left hand => Right hand” => ”Mouth” => ”Left hand” => ”The ladle”.

Next is how to purify in detailed.

  1: Hold the ladle in your right hand, and scoop water into the ladle

  2: Pour it over your left hand

  3: Hold the ladle in your left hand, and scoop water into the ladle

  4: Wash your right hand clean

  5: Make a cup by you left hand

  6: Fill it with water from the ladle to sip and purify your mouth

  7: Wash your left hand clean again

  8: Hold the ladle vertically , the remaining water runs down the handle to clean the ladle itself.

Keep mind , Don’t walk on the center of the approach to the sanctuary.
It is a path for the God.

Step4: Go in front of offertory box and toss money into box.

You can stand the center up in front of offertory box.

Step5: Ring a bell.

Step6: Please pray with the below manner.

1 : Make two formal bows at a 90-degree angle.

2 : Clap two times.

3 : Pray and make a wish.

4 : Make one more formal bow at a 90-degree angle.

Done !

If you want to get a red ink stamp, you should do after praying.

Let’s go a shrine.

Thank you for reading until the end.

Have a good day !

Madoka
