There are many people who come together at the altar in the home or relative’s house as the time of the equinox approaches. This time, we conducted a questionnaire about “Buddhist altar”. Until now, 84% of people have joined hands on the altar, and we found that the act of joining hands on the altar is an activity that many people are experiencing, except for religious reasons. On the other hand, 63% of respondents answered that they do not have a Buddhist altar at home. However, the majority of the people who think that Buddhist altars or a place to replace Buddhist altars are needed in their teens revealed a high level of interest in young people. Also, since teenagers accounted for the majority of information about practices and maintenance management, not only grandparents but also parents, the feelings of recuperation were passed on from the upper generation to the child generation. I can ask you to be there. In recent years, housing conditions have changed, and customers are saying that traditional Buddhist altars cannot be placed due to reasons such as “no Japanese-style room” and “no room”. In addition, there is an increasing number of requests for bringing in Buddhist altars when moving into elderly facilities, as well as consultations regarding replacement and purchase of Buddhist altars and renovations. Because there are a certain number of people who do not know that Buddhist altars can be brought into elderly facilities and that they can be remodeled, the need for small Buddhist altars that can save space includes potential ones. High and expected to increase in the future. Onoya is developing various services related to Buddhist altars, such as selling small Buddhist altars and renovating Buddhist altars.
