Don-do Yaki festival was held at Gokoku Shrine as usual. Don-do Yaki festival is a new year event that new year's ornaments and old talismans are burned.
Same as last year, I could only visit this festival at a weekday, because of my schedule. In spite of a weekday, many worshipers visited this shrine. While I recorded the sounds, there were always some worshipers at the shrine.
Recorded Kagura music was played through PA Speakers, similar to usual year.
I wish you a happy new year.
