Awashima Shrine Festival (Yokosuka City)

Awashima Shrine 
(Please note that this page was created using Google's automatic translation service and understand that because of this, its translation may not necessarily be accurate.)

The festival of tying hemp to the handle of the bottomless cassotte and dedicating it will be held on March 3rd, saying, "Please join us, Mr. Awashima, thank you for visiting us." The bottomless cassotte is filled with the wish of "easy delivery so that water can drain", and can be seen in prayers for easy delivery all over the country. At the festival, a priest, a shrine maiden (Miko), boarded a boat from the Ashina coast in front of the shrine and performed a sinking chick (bina).
A memorial service for the dolls brought in will be held.
