Chinowa Kuguri for Summer Passing at Suguro Shrine | SAKADO

June 22, 2018 @ 09:30 - June 24, 2018 @ 16:30

Chinowa Kuguri is a type of shinto ritual and one of the rites of “Nagoshi no Harae” often translated as “summer passing” in English. It is believed that by passing through the ring of chigaya, grasses entwined around a circle of bamboo, that it will increase ones chances of getting through the hot sultry summer in good health.
