Chimaki matsuri
A festival held on May 31 at Katatagae Shrine in Sakai City, Ōsaka Prefecture. Given the shrine's strong relationship with the belief in yin-yang directional taboos (katatagae), many people visit it when building or moving into a new house in order to receive katatagae talismans (shinpu) and rice cakes wrapped in reed leaves (chimaki), believed to be effective in avoiding inauspicious directions. After the festival on May 31 ends, chimaki made of earth are given out to the visitors.
