Medium deriving bridal couple to front shrine makes low brain respectfully.

And head fireman speaks congratulatory address (notto) of celebration, and lumber-carriers' work song begins in especially high-pitched voice.
It is yoo - o - yaaa - ruyoo - lumber-carriers' work song "Manazuru".
Knob of lumber-carriers' work song of high-pitched voice that we utter when crane flies away echoes in the precincts of Shinto shrine.

Bridal couple who leaves Myojin Hall, and advances with voice of lumber-carriers' work song
We go to front shrine with carpet of scarlet that family attending wedding ceremony, line of friends were spread in the precincts.
Good atmosphere that nobody knows surrounds the precincts, from nature and worshiper and all of visits
Applause of celebration arises. Good.

It is little distance and time from hall to front shrine
This time and space where tune of gagaku spreads, and lumber-carriers' work song of celebration of head fireman does not break off.
We hope that it becomes good memory of bridal couple and attendant.
