Shiroyama Jinja Sairei Gyoji (Shikano Matsuri)

Shiroyama Jinja Sairei Gyoji (Shikano Matsuri) Tottori (Apr.)

Shiroyama Jinja Sairei Gyoji (Shikano Matsuri) is a traditional ritual boasting a history of 400 years. It is held once every two years. In the evening before the main event, a ritual is held at Shiroyama Shrine to welcome the deity into the mikoshi (portable shrine). Lanterns are then lit, and a procession takes place around the town. The main event begins in the afternoon of the next day and continues into the night in a lively manner, with four floats said to imitate those of Gion Matsuri in Kyoto, sacred sakaki plants, shojo spirit and Shishimai lion dancing, a samurai parade and mikoshi.
