This is a traditional event to worship Confucius and the Four Sages, which has been held for the past 300 years at one of the most important cultural properties of Japan "Taku Seibyou (Temple)". In the ceremony, while Gagaku (ancient Japanese court music) is playing, Kenkan and Saikan wearing costumes from the Chinese Ming dynasty will offer seven kinds of food and Amazake. After the ceremony, a festival called "Koushimatsuri" there will be held to show the lion dance and Sekisa No Mai, a dance imported from China.
