Japanese Culture and Japanese gifts ( Hanko, Japanese Traditional Clothing and Accessories ) ⑪ - A Gift From Japan

I went to one very famous temple in Kyoto that is called Toji to see the illuminated cherry blossom with Japan’s tallest five-storied wooden pagoda 

Toji, or the Kyöö Gokokuji, is a monastery temple that was founded in 796 under Emperor Kammu’s order and is associated with Kūkai, the renowned Buddhist priest in the Heian period, Kūkai was honored with this imposing temple by Emperor Saga in 823. This temple boasts Japan’s tallest five-storied wooden pagoda, which is the most time-honored landmark in Kyoto. In addition to its impressive array of buildings, Toji possesses an extraordinary collection of Buddhist art, such as sculptures, mandalas, and implements used in esoteric rituals, which demonstrates that Toji was the center of Shingon practice in Kyoto.

 

When I go to Toji, on the way, one cat waited for me to come in another small shrine near Toji. 

I tried to listen to her who says, but I could not. 

And then I found an old Japanese traditional style spa.

When I enter Toji,I almost cried, because they were too beautiful.

 

 

Japan’s tallest five-storied wooden pagoda is reflected on the pond, very very awesome.

 

And it was cold outside, so I ate zenzai

Zenzai is a sweet soup made of red beans with a rice cake and Japanese tea,

they were not so sweet and just the right sweetness, very delicious.

They made me warm.

 

 

I saw people who wore Yukata, Samue, and kimono here.

Why don’t you wear them and come here?
