Horyuji Oeshiki

お会式(法隆寺)

Prince Shotoku played a key role in the spread of Buddhism in 7th century Japan. A service to commemorate his death is held every March at Horyuji, head temple of the sect which bears his name. The ceremony is perhaps best known for the colourful offerings laid out in his honour. Heavily influenced by ancient Korean rites, the breath-taking temple atmosphere is said to resemble a Buddhist paradise.
