Kiyomizu-dera will open an online conferment office, “Beyond the_ OTOWA” from November 10th
Aiming to remain a familiar presence in the rapidly changing modern society, Mt.
At this awarding place, we will introduce new items that have been upcycled using old materials from recent restoration work and roof replacement. In addition, on the blog, we will post stories about the small forces that continue to support the temple and their roles, and we plan to upload content that will provide a new perspective for the next visit.
Kiyomizudera temple:
For more than 1200 years, Kiyomizu-dera has carved a history as a Kannon sacred site that many people worship.
It is an unchanging principle to visit temples like Nichisan and Tsukisan, but there are times when it is difficult to visit for various reasons. With the hope that you will feel closer to the temple and Kannon at such times, we will open an online awarding office on November 10, which is the festival day of Kannon (17th of the lunar calendar every month).

At this conferment office, you cannot confer amulets or amulets, but you can confer items such as fudadate and prayer beads.
Some of these items are made by reusing (upcycling) materials such as old materials from the restoration work of the main hall of
Kiyomizu-dera Temple and other halls, and old cypress bark from the re-roofing of the main hall. The material that has protected the temple and the prayers of many people over the years has been reborn and reborn as a new shape.
In this blog, we will introduce the roles that these items played at Kiyomizu-dera before they were made and the various stories related to them. I think you can understand that a small force gathers and the temple is established.
We will continue to introduce items that can be reused and
manufactured. We hope that you will keep it in your possession for a long time and feel the will of Kanzeon Bodhisattva, and we hope that Kiyomizu-dera will make you feel closer to your heart.
The Jozai obtained at this temple will be used carefully for the maintenance of the temple grounds and forests on the precincts. d111761-2-570005563b531f01b769-2.jpg&s3=111761-2-8762ea53ce58cdac7c8c8e31740b182c-2048x1365.jpg
