Mitana-e shinji
"Sacred trellis rite." A rite held on January 14 at Kamowakeikazuchi Shrine in Kamigamo, Kita Ward, Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture. The rite includes holding a "reading of the fish" (uodoku). In the past, the six shrine estates (shinryō) in Yamashiro Province (the southern half of modern Kyoto Prefecture) would each send a trellis to the shrine as an offering. Since the estates no longer exist in modern times, the shrine handles the preparations and presents food offerings (shinsen) for each trellis. Branches of the toritsukenoki or toritsukeshiba (the words refer to trees whose wood is used in the presentation of offerings of game) are laid in front of the trellises and the ceremony takes place. The "reading of fish" refers to the counting and recording of the varieties of fish included in the offerings.
