Title
Text This word is used at both Buddhist temples and Shintō shrines. In Shintō, it refers to a day that holds special meaning for a particular shrine such as its founding day, the day the Shrine's "enshrined kami" (saijin) descended, the day an important oath was taken, or any other such day of ritual importance. In many cases, there is an accompanying belief that the benefits of those prayers will be greater than usual when one goes to pray (sankei) at the shrine on that day. A shrine does not necessarily have only one ennichi per year, and in fact some shrines have as many as five or ten. An example of a famous shrine's ennichi is the "Tenjinsan no hi" at Kyoto's Kitano Tenmangu, which occurs on the twenty-fifth day of every month. Throngs of visitors come that day, and stalls and kiosks line the approaches to the shrine and nearby roads and bustle with business. See alsosaijitsu
