Okera Sai Reviews
祇園の八坂神社で元日1月1 日早朝5時から開催される一年の安全を祈願するお祭りです。 安産祈願も1000円（税込）でやってくれるようでしたが、大晦日は寝ずに参加したのと最も気温が下がる夜明け前なので、とても眠く寒く凍死するほどでした。 京都は底冷えするので、早朝の防寒対策は万全にして行くのが良いでしょう。 more »It is a festival to pray for the safety of the year held from 5 o'clock on New Year's Day January 1 at Yasaka Shrine in Gion. It seemed to do the prayer of the cheap, too, but it was very sleepy, cold, and freezing to death because it was before dawn when the temperature fell most when I participated without sleeping on New Year's Eve. Kyoto gets cold, so it's a good idea to take precautions against the cold in the early morning.
ちょっとそこまで、「白朮祭」ヘ ！ 大晦日から元旦の午前5時にかけて行われる新年最初の祭典です。御神火は大晦日の夕刻に境内の灯籠に灯され、人々の願い事を書いた「をけら木」を元旦早朝にかけて焚かれます。火が消えない様に火縄を回しながら行う「をけら詣り」は京都が代表する正月の風物詩です。「をけら火」は雑煮を炊く火種や灯にそして火伏せのお守りとします。活気があり寒さはどこかへ飛んでしまいます。 more »A little up there, "Hakusei Festival" he! This is the first celebration of the New Year, which takes place from New Year's Eve to 5 a.m. on New Year's Day. On the evening of New Year's Eve, the bonfire is lit by a lantern in the precincts, and the "Noke-ki" which wrote people's wishes is burned in the early morning of New Year's Day. "No-no-No-No-No-No-No-No-No-No-No-No-No-No-No- To" is a new year's tradition represented by Kyoto. "Noke-fire" is used as a talisman for the fire species and lights that cook ozoni, and to the fire. It's lively and the cold flies somewhere.
