A cleansing ritual performed by the priest of a shrine to pray for safe towing when a danjiri is repaired, refurbished, or purchased.
Depending on the shrine, the soul of God may be put in the danjiri.
It was common to invite the priest to the town hall or the danjiri hut, but in recent years, it is often done by pulling the danjiri to the shrine and entering the shrine.
After the soul-introduction ceremony is closed, the soul-introduction ceremony will be held at the memorial ceremony venue.
After greetings from various parties, presentation of catalogs and letters of appreciation, opening of mirrors and toasts, the closing ceremony is reached.
Invitation depends on the scale, but it is common for the person in charge or deputy person in charge of each organization in the entire town to which the town belongs.
In the area where I live, I often have a soul-filling ceremony recently and it’s very lively!
The pre-practice is also tasteful, and you can feel the atmosphere of the danjiri festival and the soul-filling ceremony, which is very exciting even before the festival!
I introduced it briefly, but when you actually come to the site, you can experience the history and tradition more concretely with the locals.
We look forward to hearing from you in Japan！
