  • 【TOKYO】Wedding Reception On A Yakatabune, A Traditional Japanese Houseboat!

     

    Konnichiwa everyone!

    I’m a member of staff at HARENOHI Tokyo Bridal Salon.

    1h20150516

    Today, I’d like to talk you through a wedding day I assisted recently.

    It was a warm ceremony and reception like their warm personality… ♡

    2h20150516

     

    『牛嶋神社 Ushijima-Shrine』 in Sumida-ward.

     

    Sutatues of 撫牛 Nade-ushi ( stroking cow) are placed at some shrines in Japan.

     

     

    Generally it’s believed that your illness and ailments

    will be cured by stroking the statue, at the same part of your body where you have them.

     

    But this Nade-ushi at Ushijima-ninja is not only for your body!

    Even your heart will be cleared by stroking this cow!

    3h20150516

     

    It is also said that if you dedicate a baby bib to the stroking cow,

    and use it for your baby, the baby will grow  healthy without any illnesses.

    4h20150516

     

    They had a photo shoot and took many pictures before the ceremony.

    Then time to relax in a spacious waiting room of the shrine (^^)

    5h20150516

    三々九度 San-san-kudo (three, three, nine times)

    San-san-kudo Through the sharing of sake,

    they come closer together and create a bond of relationship.

     

    It’s one of the most important ritual of the ceremony!

    6h20150516

    玉串奉納 Tamagushi-hounou… (offering a sakaki branch to the god)

    The bride and groom offer Tamagushi (a sasaki branch) to the god. 

    This ritual usually ends with 2 bows and 2 claps. 

    7h20150516

    誓詞奏上 Seishi-soujou (Vow)

    The groom reads the vow in Japanese to the god.

    Then 指輪の交換 Yubiwa- no- koukan (Exchanging rings)

    8h20150516

     

    The ceremony was completed without a hitch.

    They all enjoyed a group photo shoot and were all  smiles after the ceremony.

    9h20150516

     

    Then the bride took the 綿帽子 Wataboshi (the special white hat for brides ) off

    since the guests were curious about how the hair was set like inside.

     

    Wow!!

    The wataboshi is so special to anyone ….

    10h20150516

    After that, let’s move to their party venue and it’s time for changing!

    They seemed at ease and enjoyed their conversation inside the car

    on the way to the party venue.

    11h20150516

     

    Look at the bride!

    She was greatly different to when she was in shiromuku

    (white kimono which she was wearing at the ceremony)!

     

    The gold irouchikake and her western style hair set

    with flowers perfectly suited her!

    They were ready for the wedding reception!!

     

     

    I personally loved her hair style and couldn’t take my eyes off it.

    12h20150516

    13h20150516

     

    They wanted to spend a warm fun time with their family, relatives and friends.

    So that they chose this venue, 屋形船 yakatabune,

    a traditional Japanese houseboat.

    14h20150516

    15h20150516

     

    They took a lot of pictures with Tokyo Sky Tree and Odaiba behind them,

    and had enough time to talk with their guests.

    16h20150516

     

    The groom’s puppy was also on the boat!

    It also celebrated their new start!

    It was so quiet and polite, we all were in love with it(*ノωノ)

    17h20150516

     

    They didn’t plan anything during the party,

    but to spend time together with their guests.

    We were feeling from the guests that everyone was truly happy

    and celebrating the happy couple!

     

     

    Thank you very much for choosing HARENOHI to support your your special day!!

    We wish you both a long and happy marriage(*^^*)

     

    Congratulations♪☆

    【TOKYO】 Lion-dog “Komainu”

    Hi everyone.

    I would like to talk about 「狛犬 Komainu」 today.

     Komainu is often called lion-dog in English.

    A statue of a lion-like creature at shrines. 

     

    【神社の狛犬 Komainu at Shrines】

    IMG_9576

    ◆神社の狛犬とは What is komainu?

     

    Everybody often sees a pair of「Komainu」 statues

    when we enter the entrance of shrines.

     

    狛犬 Komainu=Gaurdian of shrines, often seen at shrines in Japan.

    They are placed in pairs but the two statues are not the same.

     

     

    The one on the right side from the entrance is actually not komainu,

    its name is 獅子 Shishi = It always opens its mouth.

     

    And the one on the left side is the one called 狛犬 komainu

    = It closes its mouth and normally has horns.

     

     

    The pair express 「阿吽Aun」

    The meaning of Aun to be in synchronization with each other.

    Lately  both statues are called the same komainu.

     

    ◆実際の神社の狛犬 The Actual Komainu

     

    A picture of an actual komainu (shishi) is the pictured.

    The one on the right side, the shape of its mouth looks like

    when you make the sound 「あ A」.

    IMG_9572

     

    This komainu can be seen at 代々木八幡宮 Yoyogi-hachimangu in Shibuya-ward.

    The face has deep carving which makes it look gallant、but also slightly affectionate.

    In addition, it’s holding a puppy by its feet! (´∀`*)

     

    The one on the left side =「吽 Un」,

    the shape of the mouth when you make the sound “Un”.

    \IMG_9573

     

    It also can be seen at Yoyogi-hachimangu,

    the left komainu is holding a ball! (´-`*)

     

    ◆その他の神社の神使 Other Statues of Shrines

    There are many other statues at shrines such as the fox, rabbit, boar and so on.

     

     

    Komainu is the guardian beast.

    On the contrary, .

     

     

    Mammals, birds, insects even imaginary creatures….

    If you visit a shrine to pray,

    you should check the reason why the shrine has the animal.

    There woudl be  a historical reason!

     

     

    We naturally take the statues for granted.

    But depending on the shrine,

    the face of  the statue varies and you will find a new one every time!

    When you visit shrines, don’t miss to check out the komainu and shinsi♪
