Formerly, the month of October was called “Kannazuki” (“the month without gods”) but in Izumo, it is called “Kamiarizuki” (“month of the gods”) because it is considered that during this time of the year, a myriad of deities gathers for a pilgrimage to the city’s sanctuary. At the heart of this place lives Kanna, a young girl passionate about racing who suddenly loses all her motivation when her mother dies. [Via: Anilist]
