Jennings, contesting the allegedly unchanging nature of ritual, argued that ritual is adaptive, varying in space, and changing in time (1982, 126). Indeed, recent approaches emphasize the importance of applying a temporal frame to the study of concrete ritual practices, to pay adequate attention to the changes in the social reality, and to see single patterns of cases of ritual practice as products of different historical moments, an approach I am strongly pursuing through the present work. Following the development through which the pattern and role of the celebration went across times, unfolds the path that closely followed transformations of the Japanese society, regarding in particular, family structure and norms, view on children, modes of production, consumption, and closely related economic conditions surrounding individual lives.

As for the modalities of revival, Boissevain defines four different modes of revitalization process: revival/reanimation, restoration, retraditionalization, and folklorization (Boissevain 1992b, 6–14). For a list of works, see Grimes 2002. Grimes brings in his works numerous examples of invention and renewal of rituals in present-day Western societies. The author also addresses the difficulties that arise when rituals need to be invented in social realities that lack effective rituals, such as most of the Western societies do, for example.
