Mandara surprises

  • Blog

On Wednesday, some students and some staff went to Yokotemachi, to see the mandaras there.

A mandara is a painting, and is important to Buddhists. The ones in Yokotemachi are very old. We saw three of them.

Some of them were very old — as old as 370 years! They were all very beautiful.

We could only see them one day a year — Feb. 15. They are not open to the public any other day. So this day was very special.

We will try to go again next year. Maybe we will get a full tour next year. See you there!
