Doburoku Matsuri

Things to do

This festival takes place in thanks for the new harvest. Visitors are entertained with unrefined sake brewed from the newly harvested rice that was offered to the gods in the previous year. The festival's traditional Shinto dance in honour of the gods takes place at 12.30pm; it’s been designated as one of the nation's Intangible Folklore Cultural Assets. The dance is followed by the presentation of a horned owl and grass wreaths that are used in Shinto purification rites.
