We pray for good harvest and healthy growth of children during this ceremony.
Cultivation dance performed by children is unique to this ceremony. 
The ceremony is an ‘event for guardian deity of rice cultivation in Yamato’,
and is registered as a nation’s selected intangible property of folk culture.
Taken at Susanoh Shrine in Niizumi.
