Jigen-e (Gold Dragon Festival) at Asakusa-Kannon, Taito, Tokyo
18th March, 2018 | at Asakusa-Kannon, Taito, Tokyo
On March 18 in the year 628 (the 36th year of the reign of Empress Suiko), two fishermen brothers who were catching fish at the Sumida River
found a small Buddhist statue.
They gave it to Haji no Nakatomo, who realized it was a statue of the bodhisattva Kannon.
He enshrined this statue on a Japanese pagoda tree stump, entered the priesthood, turned his home into a temple, and became deeply religious.
This manifestation of the bodhisattva Kannon was the beginning of Sensoji Temple, which is celebrated by the Asakusa Kannon Jigen-e ritual.
Sensoji Temple originated from the honorific name "Kinryuzan" (Golden Dragon Mountain).
