Photographer's Note

Juzuya-Machi (means "a town of rosary sellers") is a shopping street for monks and Buddhists. There are many shops selling the altar articles, statues, rosaries, and the costumes for monks along the street between the head temples of two major sects of Pure Land Buddhism, the West Hongan-ji Temple(behind the gate in this picture.) and the East Hongan-ji Temple.

Buddhist Rosaries are not only for monks. Japanese people usually bring Buddhist rosaries (of course, without the cross) to attend a funeral.
