Butsudan ceremony

Last Sunday morning 27,March. There was very unique memorial service in Osu shopping archade and temple(http://www.ohsu.co.jp). It was for the Butsudan what a family Buddist altar. The Nagoya Butsudan association gathered old Butsudan and had a ceremony before abandon them. The monks burned them in the garden and had a service for them.

  1. I understand this is a tradition, but it makes me very sad to see the old Butsudan burned! The artisans spent so much time in making them, it seems a shame to destroy all that work.
