Kamigamo shrine is one of Kyoto's 17 Unesco World Heritage sites.
Karasu means crows. After the ceremony in the main shrine, a priest holding a bow and arrow near the sand mounds in front of the hosodono pavilion leaps in a sideways motion and emits a cawing sound like a crow in a unique manner. After that there are sumo wrestling matches among the children of parishioners.
