Nara Omizutori Festival

For over 1250 years, Todaiji Temple’s subcomplex Nigatsudo Hall has held the Omizutori festival. This festival is one of the oldest Buddhist events in Japan, and is held from March 1st through the 14th. Omizutori is a sacred water-drawing festival that observes the final rite of the Shuni-e ceremony that cleanses people of their sins from the previous year in order to start fresh in the new spring season.
