Two Shinto Priestesses In Meiji Jingu

Shot at Meiji Jingu, a Shinto shrine in Harajuku, Tokyo.

A cluster of the attendants of a wedding ceremony was walking the precinct together. Amid them, two Shinto mediums were also walking. They walked through the cloister of the shrine and vanished into a hall where the ceremony was done. Both the Shinto priest and mediums seemed to be busy on a weekend because many wedding ceremonies were held.

By the way, Shinto medium is exempt from the Equal Employment Opportunity Law in Japan. So shrine can advertise for only female.
