    "Founded in 1626, Matsudo Jinja Shrine is a historical religious site, revered by Mito Mitsukuni (known as Mito Komon), the lord of Mito as the grand guardian gods of Matsudo. Its festival is on October 18, but a special celebration called ""Matsudo Jinja Shinkosai"" is celebrated only when October 18 falls on a Sunday. This observance is unique in Japan in that wooden images representing the gods of the four directions (Azure Dragon, White Tiger, Vermillion Bird, and Black Tortoise) join the festival procession. This festival was suspended after the 1941 observance, but in 1988, the rediscovery of the wooden images in the back of the storehouse prompted its revival."
