■ What is the window of the temple?
~ Help with maintenance management ~
In the past, temple culture had a close relationship with the lives of Japanese people and had a great influence on Japanese culture. Unfortunately, that relationship is currently fading, and the population decline is accelerating in the future, so it is expected that the maintenance and management of the temple will become more difficult.
Under such circumstances, in 2016, Mitsuaki Toshima (of the Shinshu sect Otani sect Kyoganji) opened the “temple window” with the aim of fulfilling the former “what the temple should be and its role”. The primary purpose of the “temple window” is to inform many people about the culture of temples and the state of mind. In addition to mall management, we are also developing “counseling and human resource development projects” in collaboration with companies.
