‘’Mikoshi’’ (the small house)
We believe that a deity is in the portable Shinto shrine called Mikoshi. When a deity is transported from a main shrine to a new shrine or during a festival, we use Mikoshi that is similar construction to the main shrine.
In hard times because of epidemics and disaster, people started to carry a deity to purify the neighborhood.
