  • Shinojima Lord's Procession Festival (Shinojima Daimyo Gyoretsu Matsuri)

Spend your New Year's holidays at this tranquil island and watching an old ritual

This unique festival is one of the trademarks of the small and tranquil island of Shinojima, located right in the middle of the Mikawa Bay entrance between the Chita and Atsumi peninsulas. The ritual of the Daimyo Gyoretsu Procession is carried out in order to protect Ojinjiki-sama, the spirit of Hachioji Shrine, while it is moved to Shinmei Shrine and brought back on the following day. It is believed that the power of Ojinjiki-sama will make onlookers to go blind, so all the lights in the road between the two shrines are turned off during the ceremony. On the next day, after a shamanic dance at the Shinojima Beach, the crowd of men almost naked will get a big brawl in order to decide who gets the Otanagi-sama of the "Shinboku" Divine Tree. Besides all the marvelous rituals, the natural setting of the island will certainly make you feel relaxed and entertained during the stay.
