The Oka Shrine in Hirose Village in Nantan City, Kyoto Prefecture, is the village's guardian deity, built about 750 years ago.
In 2010, the shrine was rebuilt for the first time in 200 years. In December of that year, the shimenawa rope was made to welcome the New Year.
This documentary film follows the passing down of the art of making shimenawa rope from the elders of the village to the young people.
With smiles on their faces, the elders teach and guide the young people, who are unable to twist the rope as well as they would like.
Ten years have passed since the film was made, and the cheerful faces of villagers who have already passed away come back to life.
