Izumo Taisha Shrine Kamiari Festival

Tens of thousands of the gods from across Japan descend upon Izumo Taisha Shrine for the Kamihakari. The festival also draws a lot of worshippers who go to the shrine to pray to the gods for good fortune. The various gods meet at the Kamihakari for matchmaking discussion, where people's lives are decided without their knowledge. Silence must be upheld so as not to disturb the gods stay at the Kamiari Festival. People refrain from music and dancing, and all construction work stops. Which is why it is also known as a memorial service festival. Please note that some part of the ceremonies are not open to public.
