8 girls dedicated the traditional "Kagura"

Main Annual Rites were served from 14th to 16th September.

Although it was a stormy weather on 15th September, about 200 people attended Reitai-sai, the Main Annual Rite, which is the most important ritual for the shrine. The portable shrines which have just returned from repairing were appeared in the procession of Shinko-sai in 15th afternoon.  The three portable shrines, were carried in front of the 3rd Torii gate by local worshippers, and 8 local girls dedicated the dance called Yaotomeno-mai.

Unfortunately, because Typhoon Man-yi had just hit on that day, Yabusame was not held this year.
