This is midopa, the online staff.
In Uji, where the head office is located, there are various events throughout the year.
June 8th is the day of Taihei Shinji.
I'd like to introduce you to the situation.
June 8th is Ohohe Shinji
On the morning of June 8th, Agata Shrine in Uji holds a ritual called “Ohei Shinji” to ward off evil.
Last year in 2022, it was also affected by Corona, and it was held for the first time in 3 years.
This is a large ohei with an umbrella passing in front of the main store.
A procession dressed in traditional costumes carries the Ohei from Agata Shrine.
We will go around the town of Uji in order of Agata-dori, Ujibashi-dori, and Honmachi-dori for exorcism.
For the first time in a long time, at the main store, we served green tea to the people of power who carry the bills .
The feature of the Ohei Shinji is that during the festival, the sacred treasure Ohei is broken and thrown into the Uji River.
It is said that Daihei has the effect of collecting bad luck, so it has the meaning of exorcism.
