The celebration of the birth of the Buddha, called Gotan-e, will be held on April 8th, which is recognized as the birthday of the Buddha. A small shrine decorated with flowers, called Hanami-do, is set in the west side of the Main Hall. Priests and visitors hold a celebration by sprinkling sweet tea on the Buddhist image placed in the center of the shrine. Visitors are provided with sweet tea after the observance. We would be grateful if you join in this celebration and offer your prayers.
