A clap (kashiwade) performed without making a sound. Sometimes written with characters otherwise read as mijikade. In the ritual protocol for Grand Shrine rites, this is the final silent clap performed after the yahirate (eight claps). Also, in the shinsōsai (Shinto funeral), the soundless clap made in front of the kami altar facing the deceased.
