Annual Major Festival was held

Annual Major Festival of this year was held from 14th to 16th September.

On 15th, the Man Annual Rite,which is the most important ritua for the shrine, was held at the main shrine, and 8 girls from local elementary schools dedicated the traditional sacred dance called Yaotome-no-mai. Then, three portable shrines were brought to otabi-sho near the 2nd Torii gate at Dankazura. Since it was the first time to hold this festival at the renewed Dankazura, many people came to see this festival.

On 16th, Yabusame, horseback archery in traditional style, was performed by the Ogasawara School. Skilled archers on galloping horses demonstrated remarkable shots and attracted many audiences.
