Rokkakudo Temple, the birthplace of ikebana, will be beautifully illuminated by lanterns in the evening. Along with the illumination, some large ikebana arrangements including a work by the Headmaster Designate Senko Ikenobo will be displayed outdoors in the temple grounds. The weeping willow tree of the temple is known as a tree that fosters good marriage or relationships. Please enjoy ikebana and the dream-like atmosphere of the Rokkakudo at night, and then why not get a special fortune paper, which will be available during this period only at the temple, and make a wish for finding your own happy relationship!
