Oharai Ceremony by Kekilen Oharai Ceremony by Kekilen
Shinto Priests at Tanashi Jinja Shrine during the Oharai ceremony.

These guys are my buddies and we got drunk on sake after the ceremony and I have been invited back to participate in any one of their future events and they say " Maaaark bring your camera " =D

The memories this shot bring back!! I was in Japan when I was young and will never forget the experience and one day hope to go back but not sure if it will be in this lifetime. The shrines are so beautiful and you are so lucky to be invited back =D

You have peeps of the coolest nature!
Luck bug. You have no idea [or maybe you do] how lucky you are. So many people would pay a fortune, or sell their souls to have a glimmer of the things you experienced! :heart:
