Many lanterns were hung in the precinct. Although many lanterns were seen in Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples in Japan, the color was different. The lanterns here were yellow. I felt a foreign sentiment when I saw the lanterns.
The name of Guan Yu was written on each lantern. It was one of his bynames. According to the name, this temple was a Confucian temple. He was an actual person and is worshipped in Chinese folk religion, popular Confucianism, Taoism, and Chinese Buddhism. And every religion has each name of him.
