Visiting the grave on the middle day of the equinoctial week Some people finally visited due to the influence of the new corona at 12:30 on September 22


On the 22nd of the middle day of the equinoctial week, many people are visiting the graveyard in Kyoto City.

At Otani Sobyo of Higashi Honganji Temple in Higashiyama Ward, Kyoto City, about 10,000 tombs are lined up on a slope overlooking the cityscape of Kyoto.

From early in the morning on the 22nd, families with flowers and incense sticks are visiting the grave one after another.

The weather in Kyoto on the 22nd was refreshing with the autumn sky spreading, and the visitors quietly joined hands by pouring water on the tombstones and polishing them with flowers and incense sticks.

A 67-year-old woman from Nishikyo-ku, Kyoto, who visited the grave, said, "This is a new type of coronavirus, and I couldn't even visit the grave on the equinoctial week in March or Obon in August, so my grandson was finally able to come. I reported that I was able to do it. "

About 40,000 people are expected to visit Otani Sobyo during the equinoctial week.
