Chinowa/Pet Blessing 2010

On June 6th, Kotohira Jinsha had it’s annual Pet Blessing and Chinowa Festival. Since the Jinsha has so many ties to us, many HDAHF teachers and students were on hand to help out with preparations, blessings, and selling omamori, or charms 🙂 We saw lots of cute dogs and cats, plus some birds, bunnies, hamsters, lizards, and even a (plush) unicorn! After getting blessed, visitors could not only buy refreshments for themselves but they also could pick up things like chicken flavored shave ice for their four-footed friends.
