Tanjo-Ji Neirkuyo 誕生時 練り供養

Procession of the 25 Bodhisattvas in honour of the parents of Saint Honen Shonin, who was born here.

The masks do not provide much vision for the wearer, so eack Bosatsu is trusting its leader on the way. It is a special honour to be choosen as one of the 25 each year.

The Amida Prayer  Namu Amida Butsu was chanted the whole day via loudspeakers in the temple compound.
