Yudate-Shishimai Lion Dance, Miyagino and Miyanoshita Walking Tour
Western Area 7h45m 4
A shrine with a yudate (Shinto ritual in which the priest sprinkles water) tradition passed down from 1714 (An’ei 5). Although there are many yudate rituals throughout Japan, ones carried out by lions are rare. You can pray for health, safety, and rich harvest. The lion stirs the hot water with the fruit of kuma bamboo grass. Then, worshippers are sprinkled with hot water to be cleansed of evil spirits. You can also enjoy a walk in Miyanoshita.
