>Mitarashi-festival, the ritual for foot bathing
The ritual is held in the hottest part of summer every year. More precisely, around the day of the ox, which is named after one of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac, in late July.
I experienced the ritual last year for the first time, so it was my second time this year. I visited there in daytime last year. But I chose evening time this year. I could feel much different atmosphere from last year.
