Isobe no Omita

Isobe no Omita Mie (June)

Isobe no Omita is held in the rice field of Izawanomiya, an auxiliary shrine of the inner shrine of Ise Grand Shrine. It is said to be one of Japan’s three great rice planting matsuri. Covered in mud, the male participants scramble to get the bamboo stuck to a large fan in the Taketori ritual. There is also a rice planting ritual, which is performed by female rice planters wearing bamboo hats, as traditional music is played. It is a nationally designated Important Intangible Folk Cultural Property.
