[Limited time] A special light-up “Yakari” will be held at Shigisan Chogosonshiji Temple!
December 10th (Sat) to 18th (Sun), 2020, 17:00 to 20:00 (until 21:00 on Saturdays and Sundays) Location: Shigisan Chogosonshiji Temple precincts

A special light-up will be held at night, where the light from Chogosonshi-ji Temple will shine toward the sky.
Mt. Shigi, which was opened by Prince Shotoku during the Asuka period, is a mountain of prayer known as Japan’s oldest sacred place for “Bishamonten-no-King”. It is said that the tiger appeared as a messenger of Bishamonten on the day of the tiger.
This year, which is the year of the tiger, will be the first year to create night content, and we will strive to establish it as new content that will lead to attracting customers from Japan and overseas.
In the main hall, we have prepared a plan that allows you to perform gagaku and various experiences.
Please enjoy the fantastic world that light weaves at the end of the year. [Image 1

  The Nara Katsuragi Gakusho Gayukai was established in 1988 so that gagaku players in the prefecture could hone their skills.
  Currently, about 20 members study gagaku, and give concerts at kindergartens, nursery schools, and elementary schools to make gagaku more familiar.
I am doing it.
