Leaving Jomyo-Ji, I entered another precinct of a Buddhist temple. This time, I visited Kanei-Ji, which was the master temple of Jomyo-Ji. These two temples were located near each other. At the time of visiting, a kind of ceremony was being done in the temple. The Buddhist flag was hung on the fence and many plate stupas were propped in the corridor. It was the time of the equinoctial week in Japan. So the behavers came to this temple and visited the family grave. Originally, Buddhist didn't make any tombs, for the metempsychosis. It is said that the Japanese custom is derived from Confucianism.
I saw people dressed properly around the main hall called Konpon-Chudo. Because this temple was one of the family temples for Tokugawa Shogunate, some of the worshippers might be descendants from the shoguns.
