Bonote (hand of stick) is thought to be converted from the martial art practiced by farmers into a performance dedicated to the god as a prayer for abundant crops, but the precise origin remains uncertain. In general, a simple plain-turned ash tree stick is used but a sword, halberd or hook, etc. may also be used according to schools. In Owari and Mikawanokuni, people guarded horses dedicated to seasonal festivals (Sekku festivals) of shrines and temples by the use of bonote from long ago and bonotes were dedicated to shrines and temples. Shigo no te is one of the bonotes handed down in the Sanage region.
