Nagoshisai Information on Shinto rituals

    Only the festival at the main shrine
Kaya no Wakuro
In order to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus infection, we will not hold the Kaya no Wakuro Shinto ritual this year.
From 7/1 to 7/4, we will set up a Kaya no Wakuro, so you will have to go through each one to cleanse.

About the Nagoshisai and Kaya no Wakuro Shinto rituals

A long time ago in the gods, Susano Onomikoto asked the brothers of Kotan Shorai and Somin Shorai for accommodation during their journey. Wealthy giants refused to stay in the future, but Somin Shorai was poor but hospitable. After that, Susano Onomikoto visited again and gave the Somin Shorai a ring of kaya, saying that if he wore it and made a ring of kaya, he could avoid disasters. And when the epidemic broke out, the Somin Shorai family fell ill, but the Somin Shorai family, who wore a kaya ring, were saved.
Following this ancient affair, Kaya has a spirit of purifying the mind and body as a sacred plant. It was a Shinto ritual to pray for disease-free breathing.

Kaya no Wa Kuguri Shinto ritual

Every year, all the attendees chant "Onusa" in front of the main shrine, and then sprinkle kirinusa (hemp and finely chopped paper) on their shoulders to cleanse themselves.
Then, while chanting "Minazuki's Natsukoshi's worshiper ...", he goes through the ring of Kaya three times, starting with the priest holding a doll.
This year, we will not hold the "Kaya no Wa Kuguri Shinto ritual" together to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus infection.
Please go through the ring of Kaya and pray.
