About

In the middle of the summer, on the last day of the 6th month of the lunar calendar, and also at the end of the year, in some Shinto Shrines takes place a purification ritual with origins in a very old Japanese story.

The legend says that Susanoo-no-Mikoto, kami (god) of sea and storms, as thanks for the hospitality, taught a man how to get rid of an epidemic that broke out in his village, by tying around the waist a ring of woven grass. That’s how the Chinowa ritual got started, and today it signifies purification and clearing of bad luck.

We invite you to walk along to  experience a tree bath and go through the Chinowa to enter the exhibit. Located at the north west corner of Kennedy Plaza.
