Japanese wedding customs question
- Good gentles,
I have just acquired a set of Japanese wedding cups from e-Bay. They
purport to be old, and are of red lacquer.
My (European) lord and I are planning a handfasting at Pennsic this
year, and wish to include a small Japanese portion in the ceremony. I
have been given to understand that there is a ceremony (can't fully
remember the name...San san ????), Shinto in origin, that involved
drinking sake from the set of three graduated cups. Can anyone tell me
if this is a period custom? Also, it would be great if I could get
more details on just what the ceremony involves.
What we're having is a pagan handfasting, done by a good friend who is
experienced in such things...and I'm hoping to add this small Shinto
part to the proceedings.
Thanks for your help!
