The Anniversary of Sugawara no Michizane's Death

the Anniversary of Sugawara no Michizane's Death

Sake and Strawberries as an offering to Michizane

"25" is a very relevant number for Sugawara-no-Michizane.

His birthday is June 25th.

It is said that it was on January 25 that he was relegated to 太宰権帥(Dazai-no-gon-no-sochi).

February 25th is the anniversary of Sugawara-no-Michizane's death.

This is why the 25th of every month is popularly known as the day is closely connected with him. On that day, ceremonies are held at shrines that enshrine him in various places.

At the office of the Zelkova Research Institute, we enshrine Michizane of Dazaifu Tenmangu at 神棚(Kamidana, the household shrine).

This year on February 25th, we offered sake and strawberries.

These strawberries were grown by Fujihata in charge of the music for 東風 (KOCHI).

The strawberries he grows are fragrant and have a very elegant taste. Michizane loved culture, art, and nature, so I'm sure he would have been pleased.

I continue to pray for Michizane's happiness.
