Fukui | Obama-shi

This is a ritual based on the legend of Onyu Myojin (god) who sent the pure water of Wakasa to Nara to apologize for being late to Shunie at Todai-ji Temple. It is held before Omizutori at Todaiji Temple, Nara. On that day, after several rituals are held in Jinguji Temple, there is a parade of torches to Unose, the upper reaches of Onyu River 1.8 kilometers away. The final ritual, the Okurimizu ritual, is solemnly conducted. The water poured or the Okozui (water dedicated to Buddha) is said to be delivered to the Wakasa well in Nigatsu-Hall, Todaiji Temple in ten days. Parade of torches: 19:30, Mizuokuri Ritual: 20:30.
