Summer Purification Ritual
Nagoshi-no-harae
2024
Shinto shrines
 On June 30 and December 31, many shrines hold a great purification ritual.

The purification which held on June 30 is called nagoshi-ho-harae,
(lit.Summer passing purification ceremony)
People pass through the gate made of reed three times like a sign
of infinity ∞. (left, right and left)

 <The origin of Nagoshinoharae>

On the way of traveling, Susanoo-no-mikoto (one of gods) asked
Kotan Shorai, a rich man,
to be fixed him up for the night. but was refused. Then he asked his elder brother
Somin Shorai,
he fixed him up and gave him the full treatment., though he was poor.
Few years after, Susanoo visited Somin Shorai again and told his family
to put a ring made of reed.
In that night, all the people except who put the reed rings were killed by disease.
It is said Susanoo-no- Mikoto told that in case disease sets in, if you say "I am
a descendant of
Somin Shorai" and put the reed ring, you will be able to escape transmission.
