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.
He made a Christmas lease as well as using same method.
