Besides the festivals mentioned above, there’s an important event: Royal God Cow. Michizane’s dates of birth and death were on ‘Gyu’ day, which sounds like ‘Cow’ in Japanese. Therefore, there’s an activity held every year for people to touch the head of the royal god-like cow’s statue. It is said that by touching the statue you will become smarter. Sick people may recover if they touch it with the part that is ill.
