Since the Heian capital (present-day Kyoto) was established in 794, the imperial court has cultivated a graceful tradition as a cultural hub. The essence of the court culture culminates in the enthronement of the Emperor and the Daijo-sai (Great Food Offering Festival). The series of these rituals is known as Tairei or Taiten (state ceremony).
