Monks Chant as Their Bodies Sway
2009.11.21.


Higashi Honganji Temple, the headquarters of the Shinshu Otani sect of Buddhism, in Shimogyo Ward, Kyoto, held the "Bando-bushi" service on November 28, the last day of "Hoonko," a memorial service in honor of Shinran, the sect's founder. In the Bando-bushi service, seated monks dynamically swayed their upper bodies while chanting sutras.

A huge "ema," or votive pictorial tablet, depicting a tiger, the oriental zodiac sign for next year, made an appearance at the oratory of Matsunoo Grand Shrine, Nishikyo Ward, Kyoto, on November 25. A New Year's mood was in the air as some visitors took commemorative photos and others got shots to use when making New Year's cards.

2009.11.28.


"Kawaramachi-dori Shotengai Shinko Kumiai," or Kawaramachi Shopping Area promotion association, in Nakagyo Ward, located in central Kyoto City, has begun a trial "light-down" of the lighting equipment hanging along the arcade for the decorative illuminations, which are an established custom before Christmas. A new kind of night-time charm is being promoted, with lines of decorations which only use LED, or light-emitting diodes.
