On New Year's Eve, we cleanse the sins of the year with the "New Year's Eve", and on New Year's Day the next day, we will start the new year and perform a "Hatsumode" to visit shrines and temples to wish for the peace of the year.Six months after its inception, after the "Summer Otoharae", which also purifies the filth, and wishes for more peace in the six months that have passed and thank you for the safety of the six months, as a turning point of the half of the year, after July 1st. I also visit shrines and temples.We call this new custom "summer pilgrimage" and would like to grow it together so that it becomes a custom that Japan should protect and convey.


Summer pilgrimage Natsu-Mode
It is Japanese tradition to visit a shrine on New Year's Eve to purify one's mind and soul before beginning a new year. On New Year's Day, one will visit the shrine once again praying for a peaceful and healthy year, and this act is called Hatsu -Mode (literally translated as, the First Worship).
Natsu means summertime in Japanese so Natsu-Mode is the Summertime Worship. With half a year gone by, one will visit the Shrine again at the end of June to cleanse their sins they have accumulated through the first half of the year, and make another visit in the beginning of July to pray for peace and health for the second half of the year.
