Grooms soaked with water in ancient Japanese marital tradition

Clad only in thin cotton summer kimono, four recently married men are soaked with icy water by four bachelors in a rare festival dating back some 400 years in Iwaki, Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan, on Jan. 9, 2017. The festival is known as "mizu-shugi," or the gift of water. (Kyodo)
