Asakusa Shinto shrine

What is summer?

We Japanese are on New Year's Eve

Pursed the yearly sins with "Oyakoi Otsuchi",

The next day is the beginning of a new year,

We wish you the peace of the year, and we will perform the "First Hundred" to the shrines and temples.

Six months from the beginning,

In the same way, after the "Summer Passion", which purifies guilt,

I'll be grateful for the past six months

To wish for further peace in half a year,

As a half-year milestone,

I will visit shrines and temples even after July 1st.

We call this new custom "Natsumochi",

To be a custom to defend Japan

I want to grow together.
