Ce que vous allez faire
You can experience wearing a kimono and practicing Shakyo (the calligraphic tracing of the sutras) at a temple in the Asakusa area of Tokyo. You will enter the exclusive main hall of the temple, which locals are rarely given a chance to visit. The Buddhist practice of Shakyo is a means of spreading the Buddhist Way. But today, aside from these religious purposes, Shakyo is performed in order to reflect on ourselves, or to attain mental wellbeing by mindfully tracing the sacred scriptures. It does not matter if one has faith in Buddhism or not, or if one’s writing is good or not. First of all, I will dress you in a kimono, and then we will start Shakyo by copying from the sutras. Shakyo is normally done while in the seiza (sitting straight) position. There is a small chair to help with that, but if it's too tiring or difficult, there is a table we can use instead. After Shakyo, we will have Japanese teatime and photography. For locals, it is a rare chance to talk to the chief priest and take photos together. You will experience different aspects of the temple in Asakusa. And it's a good way to purify and train oneself.
I was born and raised in China, and moved to Japan 15 years ago. I love to travel and meet people from all around the world. I love Japanese culture and found that, even though some parts came from China and western countries, it developed and fused with Japanese life to become a new, original part of Japanese culture. I've been learning kimono dressing for about two years. I have noticed that when you wear a kimono, you will find your movements become more elegant, which is different from wearing casual clothes. Let’s experience the Japanese zen spirit. Follow me Instagram_tokyo
