During walking around the courtyard in front of the prayer hall, a cluster entered into the courtyard. A Shinto priest and some Shinto maidens were holding the foremost position. And a man and a woman were following. They were a bridal couple and about to do a wedding ceremony in this shrine.
Both of them wore a traditional Japanese costume. The cloth on the bride's head is called 'Tsunokakushi'. Tsunokakushi means 'Cloth to hide the horn' directly. There are different stories about the origin of the cloth. It is broadly known as the symbol of the bride's resolve to become a gentle and obedient wife.
