Salmon is the star of the ritual. Long ago, before fishing salmon was banned, the Ainu will take the salmon directly from the river. But as the action still being prohibited, they bought the salmon from the local market.

The salmon will be cut into several big pieces and then smoked on the fire pit. Some other offering such as fruits and cake were also put around the fire pit. The bearers wearing Yukata never stop uttering the mantra till the end of the ritual, make it look more sacred.

This ritual of welcoming the return of the salmon by Ainu has taken the local community's attention. They will gather around at Toyohira River bank, Hokaido, Japan to watch the tradition. At the end of the ceremony, the ladies of Ainu will take them to sing and dance along to show their happiness.
