  • If you fill in your date of birth, gender, etc., you will be able to get a lottery (400 yen) for the corresponding handwritten print. In the treasure museum, Kuya Kamito, he kiyomori, etc. various statues, so you can see the statue, but i think it is good to pay a visit fee by all means.

  • Nice petit Buddhism temple. One of the West Japan 33 oldest Buddhism temples. Very close to Kiyomizu temple, only 15-20!minutes by foot.
  • Last Friday February the 3rd, I went to Rokuharamitsu-ji (六波羅蜜寺) in Kyoto, to observe the annual setsubun ceremony. Although the temple grounds are quite small, I thought this is one of the most entertaining setsubun plays. It starts at 15.00 in the afternoon with mamemaki trowing. Followed by a Buddhist prayer service. After a bit a Oni (鬼 or demon) enters and trows a web across the praying Buddhist priest, he also trows them at the spectators. Finally the chief priest trows mamemaki at the demon to trow him out. Then comes the final mamemaki trowing, while shouting “Demons out! Luck in!" (鬼は外! 福は内 - Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi!). Maiko, Samurai woman and prominent figures of Kyoto all joint in for the fun.
