Festivities in Damine

The village of Damine has a very special annual celebration dating back a few hundred years. The local shrine is open for this one day out of the whole year, so everyone in the village comes to take part in the special ceremonies. The local residents perform lively songs and dances to express thanksgiving and wishes for future safety and prosperity.
