Cleanse Your Hands

Beware of dragons at shrines.Before praying at shrine, one is suppose to come over to this cleansing area and clean the hands, feet, and mouth. The proper way is also to bow before and after doing your cleaning. Few people do much more than clean their hands these days, occasionally rinsing the mouth too, but you better at least do that much—the Dragon is watching!

(Better do it or he will eat you.)
