Mikike house

The Miki family has offered a linen cloth, which is prepared by the Awaimabe family for the Daijosai Festival.
The Daijosai is a ceremony in which the Emperor, for the first time since his accession to the throne, offers new grains to the gods and ancestors in the Daijo-gu, shrine, and then consumes them himself to pray for peace and a good harvest for the nation and the people.
For the ceremonial offering in 2019, the 28th head of the Miki family, Mr. Nobuo Miki, delivered the ceremonial dress to the Imperial Household Agency.

The house of the Miki family exhibits the process of ceremonial dress making and records of hemp cultivation to make the dress.
