336a1231 336a1255 336a1278 336a1288I was so lucky and privileged to have exactly the right timing to happen across this incredible annual procession at the Zojoji temple today. Zojoji was founded in 1393 as an orthodox and fundamental nembutsu seminary for Jodo Shun in the Kanto (east Japan) region.

Before the procession, I was welcomed by monks into a smaller temple behind the one pictured above and lit a joss stick and joined in a meditative drumming session. It was lovely to be taken into the fold of another religion.
