First day journey

Posted on January 1, 2012


We had our journey of temples and shrines in jiyogaoka today. Kunhonbutsu temple is just a few minutes by walk. Temple and it’s garden is so beautiful and bells were tolling for a long time. I heard Buddhist temples all over Japan ring their bells 108 times to symbolize the 108 human sin and to get rid of the 108 worldly desires regarding sense and feeling in every Japanese citizen at midnight on 31 December. I didn’t hear them last night then I was happy to watch it today in temple.


Little shrine in jiyogaoka was so crowded. People were standing in a long line before the offering hall and it’s gong waiting to get kami sama’s attention.


Nice weather and even we had a little earthquake!

Come on UP House.
