Kasamori Kannon (笠森観音) in Autumn
The Gokaicho(御開帳) is now held during October 17 and November 18. You can meet a principal image, the eleven-faced kannon (十一面観音 ).
I visited Kasamori Kannon to see the kannon image on Oct. 23. When I stood before her for the first time, I couldn't help being taken in her plump and merciful face. And I felt like talking to her for a long time.
This is a view from the balcony of the main hall.
This is a child-raising Jizo hall. Jizo is believed to be the guardian of the Earth who saves all creatures after the death of Buddha, before the appearance of the benevolent bodhisattvas(菩薩) in Japan.
