In the sacred chamber, the maiden is waiting...
Before dawn, she changes her clothes thin Hitoe,
then makes her breath soft...

Then, it dawns...
The arrow of Sun light pierces the east window, and pierces her body...
She makes her body trembling...
A sacred marriage of shrine-maiden in ancient Japan...

(Hitoe; A kimono made of one sheet of cloth which is used from spring to autumn, or in a bedroom.)
