Japanese pilgrims celebrate New Year with ice-cold water plunge

Japanese bathers braved freezing temperatures to perform a traditional ice bath ritual in Tokyo on Saturday. Dressed only in loincloths, the 44 participants make a fresh start to the New Year by plunging into ice-cold water. The ritual is said to purify the soul and bring good luck. It forms part of a two-day festival held every year at Kanda Myojin Shrine to honour and pay homage to Daikoku... Еще, the deity of fortune.
