Rice plants yield crops three to four months after planting. In Taga Grand Shrine, rice was planted on a sacred paddy field during the rice planting festival on the first Sunday of June. It is harvested on the last Sunday of September.

In Taga Taisha first ears are taken by girls called nuibome in traditional dress. They give rice to the priests who take it to the shrine and put on the altar.

Rice picked up on this day will be used for Niinamesai ceremony performed by Emperor Akihito on 23rd of November.
