Does even deities change his clothes for summer season…? : Tour Report of Meiji Shrine & Harajuku on May 5, 2024

Thank you so much for having choose our walking tour on May 5, 2024 at Meiji Shrine & Harajuku. We welcomed 11 guests from US, UK, Poland, Finland, Singapore and Argentina, and had a precious time with them. Here are many good pictures we took during the tour attached. We hope all you enjoy!

At this day, Meiji shrine had one of the annual event called “Onzo-sai”, which was for changing deities’ clothes from winter ones to summers ones. Almost all priests of Meiji shrine might have participated the special worship in the main hall. We had met so many priests that just have finished the ritual them came out from the hall. They looked so solemn.

We always make efforts to improve our tours and highly appreciate your feedback on our TripAdvisor/Facebook etc. Your comments would makes us happy and give us more strong motivations to keep our volunteer activities.
