The path to the shrine. The sacred rope hanging from the torii is called “shimenawa” and is used to separate the profane from the divine. The zig-zag paper streamers are called “shide”. Can you tell I did a lot of projects on shrines and temples in Japanese class?
El camino hacia el santuario. La cuerda pesada sagrada de paja de arroz que cuelga del torii se llama un “shimenawa” y se emplea para separar lo profano de lo divino. Las tiras de papel en zigzag se llaman “shide”. ¿Ya te das cuenta que hice muchas presentaciones sobre las religiones japonesas en el bachillerato?
