Overview

The Sumiyoshi Matsuri, also called "Oharai," is a festival centered around one of the main regular festivals at Sumiyoshi Taisha Shrine which is held on Marine Day in July, and begins with the Mikoshi Arai Shinji ritual, in which the Sumiyoshi Taisha portable shrine is purified with seawater gathered by a boat called a "shiokumibune." Following the Yoiyamisai festival on July 30th and the main regular festival on the 31st, the Nagoshi Harai purification ritual is performed, in which finely dressed women and children pass through a ring of woven grass. After the Oharai ceremony, the general public is allowed to join in passing through the grass ring. On August 1st, finally the spirit enshrined at Sumiyoshi Taisha is carried to Shukuin Tongu Shrine in Sakai in the portable shrine by a procession, which is called "Mikoshi Togyo." In 2005, the custom of making the procession of foot was revived after a period of 45 years.
