Introduction

大蓮寺のハス

I show my deepest condolences to the victims of COVID-19 and sincerely hope those who suffers find themselves in peace. 合掌。

In this post, I’ll show you what is going on here in Kyoto. The original one, written in Japanese, is posted in last March. Since then, I have revised it for nearly a year. It is a long article and I can’t translate it right now. So, I will do that in anti-chronicle order gradually.

On 8 Jan., the 2nd state of emergency went into effect in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, and Chiba. 6 days later, it expanded to Kyoto and other 6 prefectures.

Today, Kyoto saw the first weekend under it. The photo shows us Shijo Kawaramachi, the most crowded place in Kyoto. The number of people decreased about 50% compared with usual weekends.

This is Kiyamach street between Shijo and Sanjo street. It is a downtown and we can find lots of restaurants and bars. There used to be lots of people down there.

At Nishiki Tenmangu shrine, there is a Nade Ushi ox. We can usually touch it to have Goriyaku (Kind of good fortune) but the shrine asks us not to do. The small card says, “Touch me in your heart.”

Shinto shrines and Buddhist temple don’t provide us with Chozu (Place to wash our hands) and Misuzu (Bells rung before praying) these days. Fortunately, we can ring the Misuzu at Nishiki Tenmangu shrine. Don’t worry. We can use hand sanitizer spray there.

謹んで新年を賀し、皆さまのご健勝を祈念申しあげます。

Welcome 2021! I hope you, your family and friends are in peace.

Japanese people visit Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples on the 1st day of a year. It is called Hatsumode. 2021 saw less Hatsumode visitors due to COVID-19. They decreased about 50% compared with usual year.

On the new year’s eve, we had snow. I visited Kinkakuji, Ginkakuji, and Ryoanji. To my surprise, I saw tourists.

January and February have less visitors than other months. The government is declaring the 2nd state of emergency. I can’t expect how does it effect the number of visitors.

Buy this year, the sate of emergency will be declared in couples of days later. I can’t predict what will happen.
