Two Monks Standing At The Gate Of Kogan-Ji

Two monks asking alms

Two monks stayed motionless

Shot at Kogan-Ji, a Buddhist temple in Sugamo, Tokyo.

Two Buddhist monks wearing a conical hat were standing at the gate of this temple steadily. I couldn't see their face because of the hats. They were holding a bowl in their hands and asking for alms without saying a word.

This temple was popular, especially for older people because the statue stationed in the precinct was believed it had a power to cure the diseases. I thought the older people were faithful usually. So where they stood could be a nice place to ask alms.
