Banshoji Temple News
There will be a rare event held at Banshoji Temple next month in Nagoya. The theme, Nobunaga Nagoya born will discuss the temple's history and its relationship between the Oda family and Nobunaga. Banshoji Temple is located in the heart of Osu Kannon in Nagoya. It is the home of Oda Nobuhide's grave. The head chief priest Daito Genyu will be interviewed by one of my colleagues Chris Glenn. After the interview, there will be a very rare display of a statue of Oda Nobuhide. I have never seen the statue in person, only photos of it. Tickets to this event that will be held on April, 20th is limited. The price is 1,500 yen.
Banshoji Temple is home to one of Nobunaga's infamous events. The throwing of incense at his father's funeral. About two years ago I have written a post on this event and the story is from the Shincho-Ko ki. http://otsuke.blogspot.com/2012/03/nobuhides-death-part-i.html
