Saturday, 1:00pm – 1:45pm, Festival Grounds

The Omikoshi or portable shrine is an essential element in festivals all over Japan. The carriers, who are believed to be possessed by a divine spirit, rock the Omikoshi vigorously; the more frenzied their efforts, the more good fortune is said to pass on to everyone. Sign up on the north side of the Fieldhouse to participate.

Since 2002, the Vancouver Mikoshi Group, or Rakuichi, has been overseeing the appearance of the Omikoshi at the Powell Street Festival.

土曜、午後1時、オッペンハイマー公園

お神輿は、日本中のあらゆるお祭りで欠かせない存在です。神霊 が宿ると信じられた人が神輿を担ぎ激しく揺さぶることで、人々に幸運がもたらされると考えられています。参加希望の方は、公 園北側、子供テントの近くで申込をしてください。
