Community Comes Together for House Raising Ceremony

The house raising, or "muneage" ceremony was held on a beautiful mid-May afternoon. Around twenty friends and neighbors gathered for a uniquely conceived set of rituals. As the video portrays, rice and sake are poured on the exterior walls to purify and bless the house and its future occupants.

A party followed and much merriment was had by all! Thanks to all who came--a truly memorable event.
