\You can attend the monthly festival from 7 am on October 1st/

This shrine holds a monthly festival on the first day of every month. Until now, the ceremony was held only by priests, but it is now possible to accept general attendance.

At the beginning of the month, I pray to the gods for the safety and health of the Imperial Family, the nation, and the safety and health of the family of all worshippers of Yaei and Ujiko.
Anyone can participate free of charge without reservation, and there will be a lecture by the priest after the ritual.
It will be a valuable opportunity to visit the ascending hall other than prayer, so please feel free to come if it is convenient for you.
(Please note that this is not a personal prayer.)

Date and time: About 30 minutes from 7 a.m. on the 1st of every month (excluding January 1)
Location: Please come directly to the main shrine
