The sound of prayer that bridges East and West


Akira Uchida will craft a clavichord from the used floorboards once forming the Kiyomizu-dera Temple’s Main Hall stage and with it will perform. With this project, titled “silk road – a path of prayers,” we will pray for world peace and offer a clavichord performance.






To unveil the completed clavichord and present the journey of this project, the exhibition, called “silk road – a path of prayers,” will be held from August 9 (Monday) to 16 (Monday) at Kiyomizu-dera Temple’s Kyodo Hall.
