Hey fedi I need some boosts here: after weeks of trying, I'm coming up empty handed finding a Japanese host institution for a research grant I want to submit, due next week.

Could be a university or a newspaper, or another press outlet in Japan. This is a legit project and it would be incredible to get this grant.

Can anyone help connect me? Please boost. #japan #research #grant

In temples and shrines wash areas, some roofed to protect them from the elements, are known as Chōzuya or Temizuya (手水舎).

The custom of purification emerged with the first shrines. Worshippers would purify their bodies and mouths in streams or rivers before praying.

#Japan #purification #手水舎 #temizuya #chozuya #Kyoto #京都

A ladle if provided at water basins in shrines and temples in Japan so that worshipers can purify their hands (and mouth). A dragon dribbles into a water basin at Hachidai-jinja.
Originally worshipers would purify themselves at nearby streams and rivers before setting foot in the more sacred areas of shrines. At important religious sites worshipers would often wash much of their bodies before proceeding to pray.


As the pandemic deepened, many temples and shrines worried about the safety of worshippers using the same ladles and water basins to purify their hands and mouths.
Their solution was simple...turn the basins into flower displays🙌

In Japan 'purification', whether religious🙏, practical🧼, or symbolic🍵, is woven into many aspects of daily life.

A favourite film a day for 365 days: The Yakuza

Robert Mitchum travels to Japan to rescue the daughter of an old friend kidnapped by a yakuza syndicate. Questions of honour, loyalty and sacrifice abound in a film that's also filled with dazzling action sequences. (For fans, the final fight against a dozen or more yakuza has Takakura Ken at his sword-wielding best.)

空夜coo:ya [Sorayoru coo:ya] - 静焔 [Jou En] (2005)

Buenas tardes! Hora de merienda, hora de disquitos. Este lo encontré de casualidad por soulseek y fue una linda sorpresa. Por #dreampop uno capaz se imagina algo más oscuro y etéreo, pero esto tiene un sonido tan #shibuyakei del 2000 que lo hacen super pegadizo. Justamente temas como hungry girl también me hacen acordar al Cerati de esa época. Es un disco super entretenido, como un Cocteau Twins bailable kjjj
