Water (Wordless Wednesday)

 These are images of the Purification Fountain we saw at the Asakusa Temple in Tokyo. The water is not meant for drinking. Visitors must use the ladles to take water that flows out into cupped hands and rise them both. Some water must be used to rinse the mouth but the water must not be swallowed. It has to be spit outside the fountain.

  1. Very interesting.
    Do people spit the water into the same area that others are drinking from? Is there some sort of filter? Just curious.

    Hope you are having a great New Year!
