Meiji Jingu is about 700,000 m2 in area. Surrounded by vast green forests that are forever unchanging, a Shinto priest leads the procession of the bride and groom followed by their relatives and other important people in their lives. The bride with cheeks colored in vermillion walks with her mother holding onto her hand. This sight is an unforgettable scene of a beautiful Japanese wedding ceremony.
The ceremony is conducted solemnly at Hosaiden. The bride and groom vow before the deities that they will help each other and contribute to society over the course of their long lives. Shinto music featuring singing, koto, and kagura flute is performed.
Hosaiden consists of right and left halls, each accommodating about 40 people.
