A Shinto ritual in which pine seedlings are planted on the shrine grounds and haiku poems are performed. With a history dating back to the Heian period, Sumiyoshi Taisha's Kuma no Mai and Shirabyoshi Mai dances are worth seeing.
Sumiyoshi Taisha was originally know for its pine trees. However, in the Edo period, the trees began to die, one by one. As a result, this festival with poem recitations and seed planting continues to be held.
