Shimenawa And Shide In Meiji Jingu

Sacred rope in Meiji Jingu

A sacred rope was hung between the trees

Shot at Meiji Jingu, a Shinto shrine in Harajuku, Tokyo. Two trees were planted just in front of the prayer hall. And a Shimenawa, a rice straw rope used for ritual purification, was spanned between the trees. Besides, two Shide, zigzag-shaped paper streamer, were hung from it. Many worshipers were coming to the prayer hall. And I could see them through the rope.

Most of them seemed not to care about this sacred tree in the precinct. Yet the trees stood statuesquely.
