Hitorizumo at Oyamazumi Shrine. Summer Solstice is celebrated at 
Oyamazumi Shrine in Ehime Prefecture with a ritual sumo match between an 
invisible Rice God and a local official. The deity always wins 2 matches 
to 1, which puts the deity in a good mood and insures a plentiful 
harvest. Afterwards, schoolgirls plant rice seedlings in a plot of 
ground in the shrine.
