The Imperial festival "Iwashimizu Festival'' was recently held at Iwashimizu Hachimangu Shrine in Yawata City, Kyoto Prefecture. It was returned to its original form for the first time in four years due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, and solemn events such as the "Shinko Procession'', in which about 500 people including Shinto people descended the approach to the shrine in the early hours of the morning, were held.
