Shimenawa making

My son has a mission making *"Shimenawa" at this time of year.

*Shimenawa is a sacred Shinto rope of rice straw.

Shimenawa separates a holy place from other unclean places. And it has a wish for rich harvest.

Every year, a local organization has a Simenawa making workshop for the local children. And he has been joining this workshop since six years old.

His grandma is a big fan of his shimenawa.
The shimenawa made by grandchild that must be the best shimenawa in the world for her.
