Japanese people preparing to pray in the NewYear
Japanese people preparing to pray in the New Year at Meiji Shrine. At a Shinto shrine, you should rinse your hands first; first the left hand, then the right. The water should run off onto the ground in front of your feet, not back into the trough. Then you go to the shrine to pray. Update to the JapanesePhotos Instagram at: http://bit.ly/2qkEvQY.
