"Myōga ginger rite." A rite for divining the fortune of the upcoming year (toshi-ura) held January 3 at Asusuki Shrine in Kanegochi Town, Ayabe City, Kyoto Prefecture. On this day, the prospects for the rice harvest of the upcoming year are divined based on the condition of the myōga ginger (Zingiber mioga; also known as Japanese ginger) that grows in the morning in the paddies used to grow the grains given as offerings (shinden) on the shrine grounds (keidai).
