Shisoshin Okamoto Jinja, Otaki Jinja Sensanbyakunen Taisai / Goshinki

Shisoshin Okamoto Jinja, Otaki Jinja Sensanbyakunen Taisai / Goshinki Fukui (May)

The Goka region of Echizen City is the production area of Echizen Washi paper. The shrine is dedicated to Kawakami Gozen, who brought prosperity to this region, and is revered as the guardian of the paper industry throughout the country. The year 2018 marks the 1300th anniversary of the founding of Otaki Temple, which preceded the shrine, by Taicho Daishi, and a large matsuri will be held. At that time, a reading of the eight scrolls of the Lotus Sutra of Buddhism will be offered. It has deep significance in that it transmits the fusion of Shintoism and Buddhism to the present day.
