Wedaugan is a traditional event to pray for a good harvest held every year on the first day of the cow after the Chinese New Year. The ritual of planting the rice while praying next to the land thought of as the origin of the rice crop "ukinju & hainju" has been practiced for over 400 years. The local men present offerings of incense, rice, and awamori and carefully plant the rice knee-deep in the rice patty while praying for a bountiful harvest. Wedaugan has been designated as an intangible ethnic cultural asset of Nanjo City.
