What is the appropriate way to hold your tenugui before putting it on?

What is the appropriate way to hold your tenugui before putting it on? Should the Japanese words (kanji) face others or should it face yourself so you can read it?


Answer: What a good question! The words on your tenugui is for you. Usually those tenugui has a very meaningful or useful wisdom for our training, so we read it and remind ourselves about the wisdom before we put a men on.

If you cannot read what it says, get someone else who can read kanji and ask him/her which way it should be read.
