[WINER EVENT] New Year’s Eve Visit to Zojoji Temple

To celebrate the coming of New Year, the Shiba Park Hotel hosted Ninenmairi (visit to temple on New Year’s Eve and staying there until New Year’s Day) tour to Zojoji Temple.

Escorted by hotel staff, guests observed the Joubone ritual (sacred burning of the old charms) and participated in the Kanetsuki (bell ringing ceremony) to wish for health and happiness of the New Year. Offering New Year’s prayer at Zojoji Temple and purchasing protective charms were also introduced as a part of traditional Japanese New Year’s custom.
