地鎮祭 Ground breaking ceremony

Private house constrcution will start soon in Suemachi, Fukuoka. The origin of the city name came from a high-fired pottery called "Sueki" was produced in this place since 5th century.

Ground breaking ceremony, we call "Jichinsai" in Japan, is the ceremony held before the construction of a building. The aim is to purify the ground, worship the local god and pray for safety during construction. We'll do our best toward the completion, the end of May.
