Chosei-In is a small temple and located in the back of a famous temple, Yugyo-Ji. I came here to visit my wife's ancestors' grave. It was a time when Japanese Buddhists remembered people in their family who have died.
When I came to the main hall, I found many wooden plates there. They were plate stupas called 'Ita-Toba' or 'Sotoba' in Japanese. They are made for holding a memorial service for the ancestors. And the name of client was written on each plate. Perhaps, they came along in the last hour. They might be lined up to dry here.
