The parade was entering into the courtyard

It might have been a big day, but many weddings were taking place at the Meiji Jingu. After the ceremony, the bride, groom, and attendees came out of the hall of worship and entered the courtyard surrounded by a corridor. At the head of the people walking in line was a Shinto priest.

The Shinto priest was dressed in a traditional costume, something you don't see nowadays outside of shrines. And he wore an eagle hat and held a scepter in his hand. It seems that a priest is not allowed to dress in any way as long as he looks like a priest, but he must follow the rules for the ritual attire of priests set by the main shrine office.
