We will have a shrine cleaning tomorrow morning in our neighborhood because there will be a festival on December 1st there. We have the spring festival on April 1st, and the autumn festival on December 1st at our shrine every year. Well, it is just a small ritual, and not so much like a festival these days. Most people in our community don’t attend it, only a few elected officials.
However, for the cleaning, one person from each household has to attend. That is the cleaning I was talking about in the post, Hinoichi Satoyama Cycling.
