Mikamagi shinji
"Firewood rite."  A rite held on December 10 at Kumano Hongū Shrine in Hongū Town, Muro District, Wakayama Prefecture. The youths among the shrine's local parishioners (ujiko) present all the firewood needed for preparing one year's worth of food offerings (shinsen) as mikamagi (lit. "honored firewood"). One bundle is offered up at the main shrine and another at the detached shrine for each child born that year. There is also a rite wherein youths who have reached fifteen years of age each offer one log. A firewood offering rite is also said to have taken place on January 15 at the Grand Shrines of Ise.
