Niijima Wakago, Miyatsukuri-jinja Shrine Annual Festival (Tairyo-sai Festival)

Dec. 1 (Sat), 2018
Niijima Island (Wakago)

Miyatsukuri-jinja Shrine, home of the guardian god of the Wakago community in Niijima, holds an annual festival where the main event is the portable shrine tour starting in the morning. The first part of the event is carried out by children carrying the portable shrine around the community along with instrumental music and rhythmic chanting. The latter part is carried out by adults carrying a ship-shaped portable shrine. After the shrine is purified by the head priest, the shrine is carried around the town. The highlight of the event is when the shrine is wildly carried into the ocean to pray for a great catch of fish. Look forward to seeing Niijima’s specialty festival!

Date: Dec. 1 (Sat), 2018

Venue: Miyatsukuri-jinja Shrine (Wakago)
