On September 8th there will be a ceremony held in Mie-do to commemorate the founding of the temple and Ninna-ji’s founder, Emperor Uda. You will not be able to see much of the ceremony as it happens inside of Mie-do, but you will certainly be able to hear it! If your timing is just right, you might be able to see the monks as they enter or exit Mie-do. The procession of the monks in their formal robes is quite a handsome sight and makes for a great photograph!
Visit Ninna-ji on the 8th to celebrate the temple’s founding with us!
