Goma throws a goma tree into the flame in the altar to ward off evil and calamity, purify one's desires, and fulfill one's aspirations. It is an esoteric ritual to ask. At Oyama Temple, once a year (usually on February 28) a special event is held. Godangoma sets up altars in front of the Five Great Myō Kings, places a fire furnace in front of each altar, burns milk, etc., and prays to the Honzon. We burn the firewood of our troubles with the fire of wisdom and pray for no illness and disaster, increased profits, and respect. This ceremony is visited by many pilgrims from far and wide, and it is crowded with bonfires all day long. Even if you look at the whole country, it is rare to see a goma performed at the five altars. The Godan Goma practice is a special event held once a year, but the regular Goma prayer is held every day, and it is a valuable experience that anyone can participate in. In the solemn atmosphere of Oyama Temple deep in the mountains, please spend a moment to wash your heart. Away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, you can purify your mind and body by participating in the ritual of Goma and return to your daily life with a new mindset. Please enjoy this precious opportunity to bring peace and moisture to your heart along with the solemn atmosphere of the temple. Anyone can participate, so feel free to ask.

On both sides of the approach to the shrine with a view of the worship hall, there is a pair of stone top dogs, which always protect the gods. This powerful and dignified komainu was dedicated in 1938 by a then-famous Japanese confectionery shop called "Oki Kyodo" in Hondori 5-chome, Shimada, the year after the start of the Sino-Japanese War (China Incident), and was carved by Shimada stonemason Masuno-chohei. The right pedestal is carved with the words "Takeyu" and the left pedestal is carved with "Nagahisa", and it seems that it is a top dog dedicated to pray for Japan's victory and peace, and the safety of those who went to war.

Oi Shrine is the water god of the Oi River, and there is a kami pond with clear water in its precincts, and the pure water from an old well flows into the precincts. The water temperature is almost constant all year round, so it feels cold in summer and warm in winter. The first pond was built in the precincts of the shrine in 1915, about 100 years ago, to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the relocation of Oi Shrine to the land of Shimada, and was built around the current parking lot on the side of the shrine office by the services of the veterans at that time. The current pond was moved to the center of the precincts in 1985 during the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of Emperor Showa's accession to the throne, and it is more magnificent in size and scenery than the previous pond. Now it is indispensable in the precincts, and it is a beautiful water scenery of the water god.

Located in Ugo Town, Akita Prefecture, Nishi Baonnai Bon Odori is a summer festival with a history and tradition of more than 700 years, which is counted as one of the three major Bon Odori dances in Japan along with the Gujo Odori of Gifu Prefecture and the Awa Odori of Tokushima Prefecture. The venue is Nishimaonnai Honmachi Street, which is the central village of Ugo Town, and it is a bon event held for 3 days from August 16th ~ 18th every year. It was mysterious and gorgeous to see dancers dressed in distinctive torioi hats (knitted hats), colorful and beautifully stitched kimonos and yukatas, dancing gracefully to the beating of taiko drums and songs. Especially this year, as it was the first regular event in four years, people from outside the town were able to participate in the dance, and many people from inside and outside the prefecture came to see it. Photos of the festival will continue after this, but I hope you can see it.
