At the famous shrine "Katori Shrine" in Katori City, a festival of good harvest will be held, as a gesture of gratitude for the thirty-three gods of the shrine of Izumo Taisha in Shimane prefecture. This festival celebrates harvest and bounty from the Gods and is a tradition of gratitude, celebrated with lots of food. One interesting point is that instead of providing wine and sake from the Gods, there are dumplings provided, normally after the festival. It is said that if you eat these, you won’t catch a cold!
