Sumiyoshi Shrine Festival, Sumiyoshi, Osaka

30th July - 1st August, 2014 | Sumiyoshi, Osaka
The Otaue Ceremony celebrated in early summer is a festival to pray for rich harvests. In this Ceremony women form a row and plant rice seedlings. During this planting, the Sumiyoshi-odori dance and other traditional performing arts are performed on the stage at the center and on the footpaths between the rice paddies. This ceremony is designated as an important intangible cultural property of Japan since it is a well preserved traditional planting style. There is Abiko Kan'non(Goddess of Mercy) which is believed to protect people from disasters and bestow happiness and the Ooyosami Shrine in the neighboring area.   (*reference: JNTO)
