The god astride the white cow has ascended to heaven. It is the day of October 23rd. Since then, the villagers have made rice cakes in the shape of cows' tongues and offered them to the temple.

SAMURAI⚔HONOR
26 days ago
How to visit shrines and temples/神社参拝の作法 Samurai were born with a sense of honor. Honor was the highest good. The goal that a young man who wanted to become a samurai had to pursue was not wealth or knowledge, but honor. Honor was a goal to be pursued "within oneself," without regard to profit or loss. Therefore, "honor" that is concerned with public reputation is not real honor. 侍は生まれながらにして「名誉」を自覚していた。 「名誉」は最高の善であった。 侍を目指す若者が追求しなければならない目標は、富や知識ではなく、名誉であった。 「名誉」は損得勘定なく、“自らのなかで”追い求め続ける目標なのだ。 ゆえに世間の評判を気にするような「名誉」は本当の名誉ではない。

【Tomorrow is Setsubun Festival】 It will be held at three shrines in Isehara City. ・ Oyama Afuri Shrine Shimosha ... Only for related parties and those who have applied ・ Sannomiya Hibita Shrine ... Oban maki 10 o'clock ~ ・ 12 o'clock ~ ・ 15 o'clock ~ ・ Isehara Daijingu Shrine ... Mamemaki (bean throwing) 15 o'clock ~ Oni is outside~, good fortune is inside~! It is an event to pray for a healthy and happy life this year and to exorcise evil spirits. There is a saying that if you eat as many times as your age, you will be happy. At three shrines in Isehara City, a grand mamemaki (bean throwing) is held in the precincts. A bean-sowing officer dressed as an event priest lines up on a special stage and scatters lucky beans all at once with shouts. It contains beans and lotteries stored in a baby bag, and local children pick them up with great enthusiasm. At Hibita Shrine, the Oni Yarai Shinto ritual is a highlight. It has become a traditional event. By the way, if you sow beans in the house, won't one of the beans you sowed at the end of the year cleaning come out? For details, please see the website of the Isehara City Tourism Association.
