It is important to be in good health when you visit a shrine or temple, so as not to bring any ‘impurity’ with you. When you enter most shrines, you’ll find a water pavilion like the one below near the entrance called a temizuya or Chozu for cleansing yourself before you approach the deity of the temple.
