【TRIVIA】

Kimono is the name for traditional Japanese clothing and it seems that in the 16th century it was already known to Europe by the name of kimono. Made from silk, cotton, wool and other materials, it is made of various weave and dyeing methods, and is loved mainly as formal wear. It looks similar, but what is worn in summer and is made from thin cotton is called yukata. There used to be many people wearing yukata as a pajama, but now colors and patterns have become more versatile, and not only Japanese but also foreign tourists wear it as a way of being trendy.

Experience Shakyo and Goma-gyo at Miyajima Misen Daihonzan Daisho-in

Experience Shakyo and Goma-gyo  at Miyajima Misen Daihonzan Daisho-in - Hatsukaichi, Japan

Duration: 3 hours
Location: Hatsukaichi, Japan

From USD
$86.36

*PLAN NAME   

Experience Shakyo and Goma-gyo at Miyajima Misen Daihonzan Daisho-in    

*OUTLINE

In this plan, you can experience Shakyo (sutra copying) and Goma-gyo (holy fire practice) at Daisho-in which is the oldest temple in Miyajima in Aki Province.

Your mind will be calmed by the veiling scent of Japanese ink and sutras while experiencing sutra copying.  On the other hand, while experiencing the holy fire practice, you will be overwhelmed by looking at blazing fires and smoke rising to the ceiling of the hall.

We recommend you experience the sophisticated ancient Buddhist culture which is rooted within the Japanese unique history and tradition.

・ Experience sutra copying calming your mind 
You will experience Heart Sutra copying (hand-copying.)  Heart Sutra expresses the teachings of Buddha into short sentences in 276 letters. You can set paper onto the sample of a Heart Sutra and trace the paper over the sample with a brush.  So you do not need to worry even if you cannot write Kanji (Chinese characters).

Your mind will be calmed in a natural way as you copy sutras in an atmosphere where you sit down properly with your back straight, smelling the scent of an ink-stick which  the priest is rubbing down.

・ Experiencing the holy fire practice overwhelming you by blazing fires
Goma (holy fire) is making  a sacred fire.  Soe-gomaki is a wooden stick on which wishes are written and is burned in the sacred fire as a offering.  A priest recites mantras in front of the burning fire and throws offerings (soe-gomaki) into the fire to pray wholeheartedly.  That is the holy fire practice (Gomagyo).

You will have a chance to learn about Buddhism by looking at the way how the sacred fire blazes and smoke rises to the ceiling of the hall, which expresses that an offering, in this case a holy fire wood, will be purified and will lead to celestial goodwill.

【TRIVIA】

One of the charms of the kimono is that the style changes with the combination of kimonos, obis and accessories, and that is why you can enjoy a wide range of fashionable combinations. The obi is as long as 4 meters and it not only fixes the kimono, but you can also express yourself by making knots as flowers or ribbons. The impression of kimono may be that it is expensive, but if you have a kimono that is not affected by trends, you can wear it for many years. It is said that among Japanese people the spirit of carefully treating things has been handed down when kimonos are being handed down from parent to child.
