Man Praying In The Kishimo-Jin

Man praying on other side of incense burner

An old man was juts praying

Shot at Kishimo-Jin, a Buddhist temple in Uguisudani, Tokyo.

The name of this temple is famous. Yet I have never been to. So I visited this time. Unexpectedly, the hall wasn't old and the precinct was narrow . It got my hopes too high.

When I stood motionless, a man wearing a business suit came to the hall. And he started to pray with ardor. The deity dedicated in this temple is Kishimo-Jin, a Buddhist goddess for the protection of children and happy child rearing. Maybe he would become a grandfather.
