Kaeru-tobi Ritual at Kimpusenji Temple on Mt. Yoshino, Nara Pref.
Kaeru-tobi, or the religious lesson of story-telling at Kimpusenji Temple on Mt. Yoshino, Nara Pref. The ritual of renge-e, or parishioners on the boats who pick up lotus flowers and donate them to each temple.
A man wearing a frog costume on a float is carried to the Zao-do Temple, and there the Kaeru-tobi ritual,
in which the frog pantomimes the story of the impious local man who was transformed into a frog and then transformed back to a human being
thanks to the Buddhist Sutra cited by a pious priest.
