Worshippers pray for good health in ice water purification ceremony

Tokyo worshippers take part in the yearly ice water purification ritual on the Teppozu Inari Shrine, an experience to pray for just right well being within the new yr. The members heat up by way of stretching their our bodies and soar right into a pool of cold water with large ice blocks in it.

The Brand New 12 Months event has just about 70 years’ history within the community.

“I pray for the coronavirus pandemic to finish quickly,” says 74-year-antique Yoshiko Shibata, the oldest player.
