-------------------------------------------------

"Wind Chime Festival" is a 2-months festival held every summer at Ofusa Kannon Temple in Kashihara City, Nara Prefecture.
The festival features around 2,500 wind chimes (or Fu-Rin) hung throughout the precincts of Ofusa Kannon Temple.

Wind chimes were originally a fortune-telling tool in China. Since they've arrived in Japan through Buddhism, wind chimes have been used to expel any lurking evil spirits.

The refreshing tones of over 2,500 wind chimes sounding simultaneously in a summer breeze are beyond words. Visitors also can have green tea and shaved ice at the tea house while enjoying sound of wind chimes.
Besides, an exhibition and sale of the wind chimes around the country is also held.

This is one of the temple of 八福神( seven fortune gods) in Nara. This is famous for rose garden and Japanese garden begins the temple. Pretty and calm place.

色とりどりに咲き誇ったバラの美しさと、香りに包まれながら過ごす、心やすらぐイベント【おふさ観音 バラまつり】
.
奈良県・橿原市にある「おふさ観音」で育てられた約4000株のバラを鑑賞するイベントです。
.
おふさ観音にはかつて大きな池があり、慶安3年(1650年)のある日、おふさという娘が白い亀の背中に乗った観音様を見たことから、小さなお堂を建て観音様をおまつりしたのが起源とされています。
.
ご本尊である十一面観音様は、身体健全、厄除け、ボケ封じをはじめ開運、良縁、学力向上などさまざまな願いを叶えてくださるといわれています。
.
また、美しい境内が仏様の世界にも例えられ「花まんだら」とも呼ばれています。
