Sacred rites

Yamagata | Yuza-machi, Akumi-gun

This is a new year event passed down along with Torioi and Hondeyaki in the Uradori district in Fukiura. Wearing a demon mask and a straw raincoat called Kendan, people visit each house, offer prayers to ward off evils, admonish people for being lazy, and pray for the prosperity of each family. Each district has its own design for the demon mask.
