Water & ladles for ablutions. Shinto shrine, Kawachi-nagano.
Kawachi-nagano is a satelite city of about 120,000 people on the outskirts of Osaka Prefecture, and about an hour’s journey by train from the centre of Osaka. It has a long history, and being on the route to the holy area of Koyasan was a stopping point for pilgrims. It has several important temples (which will have to wait till our next visit!)
