Misogi (禊) and Fundoshi (,ふんどし)

Misogi (禊), Freezing cold-water bathing themselves and cleaning body and soul while winter season festival calling Misogi. Men and women wearing traditional dress of white and attend to freezing cold-water bathing festival and who trust that cold-water make a strength of body and soul.

Freezing cold-water bathing time men wearing traditional dress is so interesting and it’s so similar to Sri Lankan paddy-farmers cultivating time wearing dress Sri Lankan people calling that dress "Amudaya" but Japan’s call that "Fundoshi"(ふんどし). Fundoshi`s Japanese men’s under pan some years ago.
