"Seventy-five trays festival." A rite that takes place in spring and fall on the second Sundays of May and October at Kibitsu Shrine in Okayama City, Okayama Prefecture. The ritual entails presenting seventy-five trays of food offerings (shinsen) to the seventy-five deities enshrined around Kibi Province (present day Okayama Prefecture), including Kibitsu's enshrined deity (saijin) Kibitsuhiko no mikoto. Starting around 11 a.m., the festival participants carry seventy-five trays in order down the 350 meter-long corridor that runs from the location where the offerings are prepared to the main sanctuary (honden). The many trays used for the offerings are what make the ritual unique.
