Photographer's Note

Before entering a shrine, the hands are washed. Cleanliness is stressed in many aspects of Japanese life, not just in religion. You'll usually find running water and a tin cup just before any shrine. Here we find young students using this fountain for drinking. The uniforms, scan of the film and conversion to black and white give this image the feeling that it could have been made any time in the last 50 years. The original color version has been provided in a workshop posting.
