  • Damine Dengaku Festival

A shrine ritual held since the Edo period to pray for a good harvest

This ritual is held every National Foundation Day (February 11) at the Damine Kannon Temple, and consists of three parts - Hiru Dengaku (Afternoon), Yoru Dengaku (Night) and Asa Dengaku (Morning). The most distinguishing feature is Yoru Dengaku, a celebration held in anticipation of a good harvest. Starting from a week prior to the festival, the "Dengakushu", townspeople who perform the ritual, undergo "mizugori" (cold water splashes to cleanse bad spirits from the body) and eat separately from their families, all to cleanse body and mind. The festival has been officially designated as an important intangible folk-cultural property.
