Parents and children bowing to each other

My son Takeh seems to find shrine visits a bit of a fun event.

Because my wife and I behave in a strange way. We throw money, ring bells, clap our hands, and bow.

“What’s that? I want to do that!”

he thinks, actively imitating us adults.

When I bowed to the shrine, he bowed, too. But he doesn’t understand the meaning, so he bows to me, his father.
