Miko (shrine maiden) Kagura and exorcism "Oryomi Kagura" / Jonan Shrine

Thursday, July 20, 2023

18:00 - 20:00 (every 15 minutes)

The "Oryomi" ceremony began as a custom to visit the shrine every year on July 20, the day of the Jonan-gu regular festival, to enjoy the cool of the evening. In the evening, "Oryomi Kagura" is performed on the front stage of Kaguraden by miko (shrine maidens) holding lucky bamboo branches in their hands, and lucky bamboo branches are given away. In front of the main shrine, two icicle pillars containing wooden and sakaki prayer sticks are offered to pray for health and safety, and to ward off the heat. Night stalls will also be set up to enjoy the summer festival atmosphere (night stalls are scheduled from 5:00 to 8:30 p.m.).
