July 14th is a day to celebrate Yasaka-sama (the god Yasaka)at Fukashi Shrine. Local kids visit their neighborhood shrines to pray for happiness by offering banners made of reed and paper. On the banner, each child writes with calligraphic brush strokes, ”To the mighty god Yasaka,” along with their name and age. The special banners and reeds for this event are sold at local super markets only for this day.
