Shiba Daijingu Shrine annual festival (Daradara Matsuri)
This year the carrying of Miya-mikoshi will be held
The Shiba Daijingu Shrine annual festival held in 11 days from September 11 to 21 every year is familiar under the name of “Daradara Matsuri”. Because of the long festival period, it came to be called “dara dara” which represents “a state where things are slowly continuing” in Japanese. Also known as “Ginger Festival”, ginger is given in the precincts.
On 17th September, the carrying of Miya-mikoshi (portable shrine of the main shrine) is held, and the surroundings of Shiba Daijingu Shrine are energetic.
Also, “Chigibako” (千木筥) which is very popular as a “good luck charm for happy marriage” among women, is difficult to obtain, but it will be sold during the festival period. You may get it if you are lucky.
