About wedding

In Japan, there was a marriage system since ancient times, but weddings never happened. In ancient Japan, couples did not live together, but took the form of “wife wives” where men attend women's homes. The history of the wedding is surprisingly shallow and is said to have started in the Nara period. The man went to the woman and was treated by a woman's family on the 3 day. This casket is called “Mikatsuen” and means that the man becomes a member of the family. This is the beginning of the wedding. It became popular among farmers in the Nara era, and it eventually became popular among high-ranking people such as nobility. In ancient Japan, it was common to shave. This ritual continued until the Heian period.
