Before entering the temple

Before entering, stand squarely before the gate with palms pressed together in silent prayer. The approach to the temple is considered to be the Buddha's path. Please remove your hat and walk along either side of the path.

After diving in the Main Gate

Before entering the main temple grounds for worship, we clean our hands and rinse our mouths.

Note:The ladle is always used to draw water. Do not wash hands or rinse the mouth directly with the water.

Way to worship:

Deposit offering (Japanese yen)into the offering box, and place both palms together quietly in prayer. Bow once after praying, with both palms still together.
