Shinto shrine & Miko san

Most modern Japanese go to Shinto shrine at New Year’s to pray for a prosperous year.

I also went to there in RL and in SL.




A Miko (巫女) is a Shinto term in Japan, indicating a shrine maiden (jinja) or a supplementary priestess who was once likely seen as a shaman but in modern Japanese culture is understood to be an institutionalized role in daily shrine life, trained to perform various tasks, ranging from sacred cleansing to performing the Kagura, a sacred dance.


Miko’s costume is so cute and also sacrament.

And so some japanese girls wear Miko’s costume in SL. This pic is Hotaru-san with Miko’s costume.
