I’m sixth daughter in Uminochou,Linda.
How have you been!!!
I’d just out of country a couple days,Fuuuum.that was so oooo busy right now,
It’s tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo fast!!!
When I look at the calendar and see that there is only one page left.
December has another name, “Shiwasu” in our country.
It means even a “shi” runs around because they are busy.
Well, who is the 「shi 」running around? There is an opinion that 「shi 」refers to Buddhist monks.
Because they are busy preparing for the many Buddhist events at the end of the year, they have to run around.
From a linguistic point of view, it is said that it comes from the phrase “toshi hatsuru” (the year comes to an end)
that then turned into “shi hatsu.” There are many different opinions about who’s “running” in this season,
but there is one particularly interesting one, which explains that shi is from “onshi,” and that they ran Japan’s oldest travel bureau.
why did they have to run around in this season?
It is said that many Japanese people long to visit the shrine at least once in their lifetime,
and five million people visited Ise Jingu during the Edo period.
The attendants at Ise Jingu were called onshi from “Onkitoshi,” who were originally a type of priests (a kind of shaman),
who also performed rituals and sacredobservances to the gods.
This means their role was comparable to that of a spiritual guide in today’s word. Besides spiritual matters,
there was also another reason to visit there…
