お身拭い(薬師寺)

All over Japan, households engage in Osoji, or big cleaning, to prepare for the New Year. Temples also join in ritual cleaning. At Yakushiji Temple, cleaning begins on December 29. In the morning, you can watch locals making mochi cakes, then monks and volunteers clean and purify the Buddha statues in a bustle of activity.
