Many yellow lanterns were hung in the precinct of Kaiji Wumiao

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.
