Daisenji Miyuki 大山寺 御幸 Tottori (May)
Daisenji Miyuki is a prayer and memorial service held at Daisen-ji Temple. It is said to have begun in the Heian period. Men and children wearing clothes from bygone times parade along the temple approach, together with the mikoshi (shrine float). It is said that at its peak, there were seven mikoshi, and around 300 participants. It was suspended in 1938, but was revived in 1987. At present, it is held once every three years, with a focus on men who are of an age considered to be unlucky.
