Hatsumode: A Holy Place

We have the habit of visiting a shrine early in the New Year in Japan.

It’s called “Hatsumode”.

We visit a shrine or sometimes a temple and pray for good health and happiness in the New Year. – Hayami

五十鈴川にかかる宇治橋を渡り、深い森につつまれた砂利の参道をザクザクと音を立てながら進む。

多くの参拝者で混み合っていても、なんとなく静かで荘厳な雰囲気を感じます。

日本人にとって、この伊勢神宮はこころのふるさととして知られ、国家の最高神を祭るとても重要な場所であり、そしてその歴史は古く、多くの神話や伝説があります。

I go with the approach of crunchy gravel across the Uji Bridge according to the Isuzu River, surrounded by deep forests.
Be crowded with many worshipers, I somehow feel the atmosphere quiet and solemn.
For the Japanese, Ise Shrine is known as the home of the mind, a long history, that there is a lot of myths and legends, and the very important place dedicated to the supreme god of the state.

この神聖なる場所でiPhoneを片手にパシャパシャ撮り歩くことは、何とも場違い感満載ですが、伊勢神宮は何度来ても目に映るものが新鮮で、シャッターを切りたくなります。

!!!ここでの撮影に対する重要事項!!!

・素敵だと思えるシーンに出会ったら、深呼吸しながら神と美しい自然に感謝し撮影する。

・謙虚な姿勢で撮影する。

・美人なネエちゃん(女性の場合はイケメン)ばかりに目を奪われないよう、邪心を捨てて臨む。(実際は年齢層高め

・撮影禁止場所とネエちゃんのスカートの中は絶対に撮らない。(あたりまえ

※尚、正宮等一部の場所は写真撮影禁止なのでご注意を。(正宮は、石段の下から撮影可能です。)

・そして、家に帰ったら1枚1枚の写真を振り返り、もう一度神宮の空気を思い出す。(重要)

Take that walk Pashapasha iPhone in hand, but nothing out of place is full sense of this sacred place, but in the eyes is fresh no matter how many times you come, Ise will want to turn off the shutter.

!! Matters of importance to the shooting here!!

Met the scene seems to be nice, I shoot thanks to God and the natural beauty while take a deep breath.
Shooting, in a humble attitude.

Be careful not to be deprived of the only eye, a beautiful woman Hey Chan (handsome case of women) and discard the evil face.

In addition, some places, such as the temple positive Beware of photography it is forbidden. (Palace, can be taken from the bottom of the steps.)

And, looking back photos one by one went home, I remember the air of Shrine again.

伊勢神宮は日本でも有数のパワースポット。

そういえばテレンス・リーが「穢れた人間の参拝は命取りになる」なんていう記事をネットで見たけど、参拝翌日に風邪で寝込みました(笑)

さて、これは氏曰くの反作用なのか。。。そして自分は穢れた人間だったのか。。。

全然関係ないけど、森山直太朗のあの歌が頭をよぎった。そんな人間じゃないとか何とか。

Ise Shrine is one of the leading power spots in Japan.
Speaking of Terrence Lee “worship of the man who is unclean be fatal,” I saw an article on the net say, I was laid up with a cold the next day worship (laughs)
Now, whether this is a reaction of the said Mr. . . Was the man who is unclean and myself. . .
I does not matter at all, that song Taro Moriyama has crossed my head straight. Not human or something like that.

〆はおかげ横丁で、伊勢うどんと赤福を食して任務完了。

伊勢うどん、ありゃ美味くな、、、とか、赤福はどこでも買え、、、とか言わないように。あの場の雰囲気と共に楽しむものなので。

いや、自分は割と好きです、伊勢うどん。

In the alley 〆 Thanks, mission completed eat the noodles and red 福 Ise.
Or, such Ise Udon well, there, anywhere you can buy red Fuzhou, he should not say like that. It is because they enjoy the atmosphere of the place along with that.
No, I like comparatively, Ise Udon yourself.
