We participate in Matsuri (Festivals) to enjoy blessings of Okami
Nen-chu-gyo-ji (year-around-discipline-rituals) means the yearly cycle of events at the Shinto Shrine. These seasonal observances make up the cycle of activities for the Shrine Staff and members and friends from year to year. The central events are the Taisai or great festivals of the shrine. The yearly cycle follows a rhythm from remote antiquity into the future and reflects gratitude and connection to Great Nature as well as a connecting us to a time when spiritual activity, productive activity, recreation and family life were inseperable.
