Jichinsai - Ground Breaking Ceremony

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 23 February 2018 in Cityscape & Urban.

A plot of land near my parents-in-law's house; in Japan, prior to construction starting on a new building, the Shinto ceremony of Jichinsai is performed to purify and protect the site.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

@Ronnie 2¢: Cheers Ronnie. I'll bet that when we return in April, whatever was going to be there will be already be built!
