Miare shinji, or Mikage yama no gi 御蔭山の儀 御生神事

10:21 a.m. at Yase hieizan guchi sta., the last stop

It takes around 20 minutes from Yase hieizan guchi station to Mikage shrine on foot. We can take taxi because the shrine is located in a mountain.

In side of Mikage shrine, I suppose priests give birth to Aramitama . I say “suppose” because we cannot see what is going on inside of the curtain.

After the ritual is over, we can pass through the curtain and enter the inside of the shrine to pray. We can enjoy Sake called “Omiki”. Omiki is a Sake prepare for Shito Deity. We put it on an alter. This Omiki is not a common Sake. It is distilled in a traditional way and tastes very fruity.

A priest enter the shrine to put Aramitama into a Yorishiro called “Miare gi (御生木)” in the shrine.

Yorishiro is an object to which Deity descend. For example, the horse neck Kuze komagata chigo is a Yorishiro.

The Gagaku music is played for celebrating the birth of the Deity.

I suppose Miare gi is in the box the priest holds. (At least Aramitama is inside of the box.)

御蔭祭2016

The box is in an object called “Goshinpitsu” on the horse’s back.

The column heads for Kamo hani shrine.

12:29 a.m. Yase hieizan guchi sta.

Take the train departs at 12:29 for Demachi yanagi sta. Don’t miss it, or you are late for Roji sai at Kamo hani shrine.

REPEAT DO NOT MISS THE TRAIN OF 12:29
