This is a part 4 entry of Itsukushima Shrine.
When I was in Itsukushima shrine, I saw formally dressed Japanese getting together at Haiden Hall. Wedding ceremony was about to take place!!!
The base sounds of taiko (drum) broke the silence and echoed all over shrine. Then shinto priest appeared without making noise, sat down in front of three deities, and delivered norito (祝詞) prayer.
The ceremony was solemn but was also heartwarming moment as I could see that young generation still follows our tradition.
Happy Ever After!
