Iimori Shrine – Setsubun Festival

START: Feb 3, 2024 END: Feb 3, 2024

The esteemed Iimori Shrine, founded in 1786 and recognized as a cultural treasure by both the prefectural and city authorities, is renowned for its historical main hall and stone guardian dogs. Celebrating Setsubun, the shrine hosts vibrant bean-throwing ceremonies at 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. In a unique tradition, visitors can acquire fortune beans in a decorative box for ¥800. These special beans, interspersed with colored ones, can be exchanged for auspicious items. A highlight of the festivities includes a lighthearted ritual where participants, tapped on the backside with a bamboo ‘soul stick’ by a demon from the mountains, are blessed with a promise of health and well-being for the entire year.
