Introduction of The Festival

Daisen Mohitori Shinji(Shinto ritual) Tottori Pref

“Mohi” is an earthenware container of ancient times that was used to serve water and “tori” means collection in Japanese. The mohi bearer climbs up to the pond at the top of Mt.Daisen. He pours sake(rice wine) into the pond at sunrise, draws water to replace it and also picks some mugwort before descending to Ogamiyama Shirine Okunomiya in Daisen Town.
