    The Otaue festival of Hinoo Shrine prays for safe farm-work and a bountiful harvest. Tengu, old men and lions show up in the performance. Before the Otaue festival, the lion goes to every house to collect offerings. During the festival, celebrations and performances by shrine maidens are held in the hall of worship. Afterwards, the tengu and the lion dance in the hall and in front of the main shrine. Once the dance is over, rolled up white paper is tossed into the lion's mouth.
