Excursion to the Japanese temple of the female breast
• Excursion to the Japanese temple of the female breast
Welcome to the Japanese temple, dedicated exclusively to the female breast. Located at the foot of Mount Koya-san in a small settlement kudoyama temple Dzison-in - probably one of the most unique Buddhist temples in Japan.
Outside the temple is no different from any other. But as soon as you enter, interior decoration remind of the fact that you are in a truly special place. Inside you can find thousands of wooden plates with breasts made of foam rubber and cloth, plastic or paint.
The original temple Dzison-in was built as the entrance to the sacred mountain of Koyasan. But one day the doctor came here with a special prayer for one of his patients suffering from breast cancer, and changes began in the temple. The doctor asked permission to bring an offering to the temple in the form of a breast. Ministers agreed, and a new tradition was born soon.
Since the advent of the first pair of breasts people from across the country began to come to the temple to add a mini-chest to the offerings. Some visitors pray for a healthy pregnancy, while others ask the gods for a stable lactation or the cure of breast cancer.
The tradition of a little strange, but the gist of it just fine. That's just the question arises: what percentage of these plates are turned with prayer to increase or decrease your chest? Surely such prayers are very common among the parishioners of this church.
