3 American men woke up hungover on Christmas morning 2014 and went to a Shinto shrine (a "jinja") in Eastern Osaka to attend the annual "Laughter Ritual" inspired by Japanese mythology which holds that the gods "danced and laughed to coax the sun goddess from her cave." The men discovered the existence of a laughing competition and entered. This is their story.
Apologies for the shakiness: this was filmed with a selfie stick.
