In Japan, bamboo has been considered to have antiseptic efficacy for many years, and even still, its skin and leaves are used to wrap food such as mochi rice cake. To celebrate its goodness and the spirit of bamboo, a memorial service has been held at Daianji Temple every year in June. This service is also known as a festival which is believed to prevent cancer. You will be able to taste sake poured from a bamboo decanter to a bamboo cup, and pray for good health throughout a year.
