She would not imagine that we are moving to Miyazu where she took me every summer.
We drove about 1 hour and half west to Daijoji Temple, where paintings of Okyo Maruyama is known.
When Okyo was young and struggling in Kyoto, then the head monk of Daijoji gave him the money of Silver of about three Kan, with which he used to study in Edo (Tokyo). Later when he was well established he came back to this temple with his son and disciples to paint the sliding doors of 13 rooms in this temple out of gratitude.
Visited Shino-san (Sukunahiko Shrine) at the Senba Festival in Osaka to see dance, shamisen and singing by geiko from Kitashinchi area, then at Kanso co. to have the limited edition ice cream with red beans and rice cracker🍦
I was super happy with my newly tailored kimono with little flower design💟
Drove to Nara, after a long period of quarantine, as three prefectures including Kyoto and Osaka were finally relieved of emergency claim this week.
Shorinji Temple, which is known for the 11 faced Kannon statue and a view of beautiful Mt. Miwa, was in the old time when Buddhism and Shintoism were not separated part of the Tanzan Shrine that is standing surrounded by Mt. Tonomine.
One building of Tanzan Shrine has been a location of dance and noh play and even Zeami, the founder of the noh was raised and protected by this shrine.
I prayed for improvement in my dance to all the deities.
At first I put off the classes until May 6th. However as the Emergency Claim by the government was extended and also considering my students’ health and safety, I have put off the classes until the end of this month.
