 Ise-kagura is dedicated for the gods in various occasions. Mantosai is one of them. Mantosai (ten thousands-light festival) is held once for every 50 years and the year of 2002 was the 1100th anniversary since Sugawara Michizane died. So 12,000 of Tenmangu across Japan should have held the festival in great scale. <Refer to the section “Baika-sai” which will be uploaded (sometime) later.> The Kinugawa Tenjin (Oogi), a very local shrine in Shiga, has performed the service as well. Children dressed up in traditional costumes parade from designated places (chigo gyoretsu) and gather into the shrine. Parents are proud of their children on the special occasion but kids are kids. Keeping still is not easy task for them.
