Just loved the effect of the mist of this temple…

Katsuō-ji (勝尾寺 Katsuō-ji?) is a Buddhist temple in Minō city, north of Osaka, Japan.

According to an English language brochure given out at the temple, the site was first occupied late in the Nara period by two priests, Zenchū and Zensan. The Miroku-ji temple was erected in 765 CE. The name “Katsuō-ji” was given by the Emperor Seiwa. The temple was burned in 1184 CE. The present Main Hall and Temple Gate were rebuilt by Hideyori Toyotomi.

The word “katsu” in the temple’s name refers to winning. People buy daruma dolls hoping to obtain “winner’s luck”.[1] If the wish is fulfilled, the daruma is often returned to the temple and left somewhere on the grounds.

and we’re surprised when we go inside a lot of cosplay having a pictorial inside.

Cosplay (コスプレkosupure?), a contraction of the words costume play, is a performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character.[1] Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture and a broader use of the term “cosplay” applies to any costumed role-playing in venues apart from the stage. Any entity that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject and it is not unusual to see genders switched. Favorite sources include manga and anime, comic books and cartoons, video games, and live-action films and television series.

The rapid growth in the number of people cosplaying as a hobby since 1990s has made the phenomenon a significant aspect of popular culture in Japan and some other parts of Asia and in the Western world. Cosplay events are common features of fan conventions and there are also dedicated conventions and local and international competitions, as well as social networks, websites and other forms of media centered on cosplay activities.

Usually, they are not allowed to do this inside the temple or prayer place. Well, I think they ask permission for it. Anyway, so nice to see them wearing costume and the weird contact lenses. Anyway, my son don’t want to take a picture with them.

I just really loved the effect of the mist… nice right? you can check my youtube channel for the video Click Here
