Bead memorial service
Sekizan Zen-in is a sub-temple of Hieizan Enryaku-ji Temple, the head temple of the Tendai sect, which was founded in 888 of the Heian period by the will of Jikaku Daishi Ennin, one of the founders of Japanese Buddhism who played a major role in Buddhism.
The tunnel of autumn leaves on the approach to the temple is known as a famous place for autumn leaves, and it is also called “Momiji-dera” (maple temple).
In 838, Ennin (794 – 864) traveled to Tang China on an envoy to Tang China, and after hardships learned the teachings of Tendai. He is said to have vowed to build Sekiyama Zen-in Temple in gratitude to Akayama Daimyojin, who guarded the process. After returning to Japan, Ennin laid the foundations of Tendai Esoteric Buddhism as the third Tendai-zasu (the highest-ranking priest of Enryaku-ji Temple), but he was unable to fulfill his wish to build a temple. More than 1,100 years have passed since it was founded by Anne, the 4th head of the Tendai sect, who received his will. In addition, it is included in the process of “Senichikai Hogyo”, which is known to be the most violent training in the Tendai sect of Buddhism. Ajari is in charge.

About the regional brand “Kyoto Nenju (R)”
Kyoto has been the capital of Japan for more than 1,000 years, from the establishment of the Heian capital to the relocation of the capital to Tokyo. After the Meiji Restoration, the political function was transferred to Tokyo, but the religious capital function remained, and it still occupies the center of Japanese Buddhism. “Kyoto Rosary (R)” was nurtured by the historical regional characteristics. In addition, since the early modern period, Kyoto has been one of the leading production and distribution centers of silk fabrics in Japan, and the fact that silk thread, the main material for rosary beads, was easily available was one of the factors that supported the
establishment of Kyoto.
The division of labor of traditional industries in the city of Kyoto played an important role in the maturation of the market. The market for “Kyoto Nenju (R)” is a field that requires high-mix low-volume production that combines sects, sizes, materials, etc. Without the division of labor, it would not have been possible to supply a wide variety of rosary materials and produce parts. Craftsmen have maintained and developed traditional manufacturing methods within their highly developed network. “Kyoto Rosary (R)” is truly a “brand” that represents the historical regional characteristics of the city of Kyoto.
