Flowers Coloring A Purification Fountain

We cannot always see this flower purification fountain (Chozusha: a place for purification of your hands and mouth before you enter shrines or temples). And the flowers change every season. If you have a good chance to visit, I want you to see it.


Flowery Hand-Purify Fountain Only For Weekend

Hand-purify fountain is a place where visitors of temples or shrines purify their hands before they enter the sacred site. Then, we can sometime see flowers floating on the fountain. It's beautiful and gorgeous. At Shōrin-ji Temple, we can see it only on weekends till the middle of July.
