Haguroyama Mikami enshrining of more than two deities, Five Storeyed Pagoda snow removing

I reach the beginning of spring with the calendar, and it approaches little by little in spring, but the thaw seems to be farther. The roof worked on snow removing is frequent in the houses of the Haguro foot of a mountain.

Snow removing of Mikami enshrining of more than two deities and national treasure Five Storeyed Pagoda was carried out in Haguroyama. Mikami enshrining of more than two deities at the Haguroyama mountaintop hit work using various scoops and tools by the snow of approximately 2 meters piled up on a roof for approximately one week from the middle of January. I say the snow, but work to include water, and to take down the snow which became heavy is considerable hard labor. The staff on work took down a snowy lump in severe cold hard.

In addition, the snow removing of national treasure Five Storeyed Pagoda was carried out on January 30, and eight Shinto shrine staff took down the snow approximately 1.5 meters piled up on a roof the other day from a roof for a day.
When a hard snowy lump fell heavily, I surprised the person who a big sound echoed to Yamauchi with a thud, and saw it. Five Storeyed Pagoda where snow was lowered neatly will be to look forward to coming of spring in Suginami tree.

However, there is many charm to be able to taste only at time of present this winter to Haguroyama. The Suginami tree which snow was covered with is quiet as if time totally stopped and a mountain is quiet and is wrapped. The prayer in the atmosphere unique in winter has different good points again.
When I listen carefully in Haguroyama, before coming of spring, how about?

Colder days continue, but please note all of you health.

"Winter peak" Haguro Buddhist monk 100 days ascetic practices

heiritsusai, Brahma the Creator prayer
Pine annual festival Akira Daimatsu event
Ascetic practices began in a hundred days of elder Buddhist monk, pine Saint (waiting Hijiri) that it was the leading role of "the pine annual festival" to be carried out from the last day of the year to New Year's Day. As for later 50 days, I stay in the Shinto priest-purification shelter at the Haguro mountaintop at home in 50 days from pine Saint ha September 24 and continue praying by peace (All the world is at peace, country peace, staple grains fertile epidemic breaking up) of Japan. And, at night of the last day of the year of the completion of a vow, as for two Buddhist monks (both pine Saint), the omen power that I got (genriki) is tested by ascetic practices.
Origin of the festival
Prince bee child who was an initiator of Dewa Sanzan brought farming on this ground, but the farmer who entered the rice field has died noisily. Therefore the initiator continued saying grace on the Saint mountain for basket forest 100 days. Then there was a divine message to "burn down the devil" after 100 days of one of completion of a vow, and soni obeyed it. The devil comes to be said to be "harvest bug" after the Meiji era and is succeeded in now.
It entails a great cost to perform this festival and Haguro Buddhist monk does a mendicant and goes around the whole Shonai district from old days.
