Shitennoji Temple

Visiting a Temple : We worship our ancestors.

▶ Many Japanese visit Buddhist temples to worship the Buddha. Many also go for special occasions like funerals and services for the ancestors. Graveyards are in the temple grounds, so we also go there to visit the family grave. But, we don’t visit regularly on certain days of the week.

▶ Japanese families are often followers of some Buddhist temple. The priests from that temple will carry out the ceremonies for all the services.

▶ People also go to temples simply for sightseeing. For example, many people visit the old temples in Kyoto and Nara just for their beauty.
