Jan 12

Fushimi Inari Shrine

During this Shinto ceremony, rituals are performed to drive away evil and welcome positive influences. After a series of rituals are held in the main hall, the archery ceremony takes place outside. A priest shoots a purified arrow in multiple directions. Subsequently, two other priests shoot arrows at a target 15m away, mounted beneath a mythical dragon (commonly associated with evil) created by ropes and straw.
