Fun facts

Mental health counsellors often recommend that clients clean their home environments every day. Dirt and squalor can be symptoms of unhappiness or illness. But cleanliness is not only about mental health. It is the most basic practice that all forms of Japanese Buddhism have in common. In Japanese Buddhism, it is said that what you must do in the pursuit of your spirituality is clean, clean, clean. This is because the practice of cleaning is powerful.

A hataki (叩き?) is a type of household cleaning tool, originating in Japan. Consisting of durable cloth strips attached to a stick or pole, it is used for removing dust from surfaces onto the floor, where it can be swept or vacuumed. Similar to a feather duster, it is not to be confused with an Ōnusa.

 

An Ōnusa (大幣?) or simply nusa (?) is a wooden wand used in Shinto rituals. It is decorated with many shide (zig-zagging paper streamers). When the shide are attached to a hexagonal or octagonal staff, it can be also called haraegushi (祓串?). It is waved left and right during purification rituals.

Ōnusa are not to be confused with hataki, which look somewhat similar.
