Chozuya Water Feature At Japanese Shrines

神社

Chozuya are the water butts in front of every Japanese shrine. Here you purify your hands and mouth before entering the shrine proper. This chozuya is at Atsuta Shrine in Nagoya.


Find shrines including Momotaro Shrine in Inuyama, Toyokawa Inari Shrine, Tagata Shrine and its phallic festival in March, the Naked Festival and Shin Otoko at Konomiya Shrine and the Horse Festival at Tado Shrine in Mie Prefecture.


Nagoya's most important shrine is Atsuta Jinja.
