Legacy of Cleanliness in Japan

Cleanly Japanese Wows the World

Many foreign tourists who visit Japan are surprised by the cleanliness of public parks, stations, and toilets. It is also said that the death toll from globally threatening infectious diseases like COVID-19 was low in Japan partly because of the cleanliness of its people. The truth is unclear, but Japanese people nationally value cleanliness for sure. The idea is like DNA deeply etched in Japanese religion and culture, and is reflected in many lifestyle aspects.

Filth Brings Curse

In Japan, people wash their hands before shrine visits. Before performing rituals such as "matsuri" (festivals), people perform "misogi”, washing off the dirt from the mind and body by going into the river or the sea. This dirt is called "kegare", and it is said to attract evil spirits causing illness and disaster. Like this, filth was considered a curse.

Zen Spirit: Cleaning for Enlightenment

Cleaning is also an important training in Zen temples in Japan. Cleaning does not only remove dirt from the house and garden, but also leads to polishing the mind beautifully. Cleaning everything – the space, the body and mind – is essential for training.
In temples, the cleaning tools are also used with care. They use every part of the rag so that it wears down evenly, and use the broom at various angles so that it lasts longer. When the rag gets dirty, it is used as a duster, and is not simply thrown away as garbage.

Spirits Dwells in Cleaning Tools

In Japan, the broom for cleaning has been worshiped as what God dwells in. It has been cherished as a sacred tool which does not only remove dust, but also the evil. There is also a legend that there is a beautiful goddess in the toilet, and those who clean the toilet will become beautiful and blessed with fortune.
