Niiname Sai

In Japanese culture, Shinto’s Niiname Sai is a very important rite that was celebrated annually as a form of a thanksgiving ceremony by the emperor to the Kami of Heaven and Earth for the provision of newly bumper harvested rice during the autumn season of harvest. Over the past few years, the Niiname Sai celebration that is held on November 23rd every year was declared a new national holiday and rebranded to be Labor Thanksgiving Day.
