Japanese Culture and Japanese gifts ( Hanko, Japanese Traditional Clothing and Accessories ) ⑤ - A Gift From Japan

I went to one very famous temple in Kyoto that is called Toji.

Toji, or the Kyöö Gokokuji, is a monastery-temple which 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.

This is Japan’s tallest five-storied wooden pagoda.

 

There are other temples in Toji

 

 

There is a long gate and a big fence in Toji.

 

On the 21st of every month a “Kobo Market” is opened in honor of Kobo Daishi, and it has the atmosphere of a temple festival. 

 

Also, I’ve taken part in Kobo Market too.

I sold Hanko ( Japanese name stamp ) and I took my customers who are from US and France.

I had a good time with them.

 

In any temples, you are going to see a  lot of abbots who are wearing Samue,

 customers who are coming there also are wearing Kimono or Yukata.

Would you stop by our shop and check Samue, Yukata and so on,

we have a lot of Japanese traditional clothing.
