Connecting of present and ancient 「The tone of Kyoto」 – Exhibition of Sahari Orin
We will exhibit Orin from Nanjo Workshop , which mainly Buddhist accessories are used in temples and gongs, etc., are used at the Gion Festival.
It has been believed that the clear sound of Sahari Orin has the power of dispel and purify evil spirits.
The clear of sound but calm and long lingering sound can be used freely for praying to the deceased, mindfulness, yoga, healing, etc., and the tone will resonate comfortably. You can feel the traditional techniques that have been handed down from generation to generation and the clear sound of the laborious work. Some exhibits can be purchased by actually touching them.
Exhibition period: Saturday 28th, December 2019 to Saturday 29th, February 2020

The bronze called “Sahari” used in all products is manufactured a few in Japan because traditional techniques are required for casting and processing. Gongs are used at the Gion Festival are being produced, as the relationship between Human and Buddhist tools changes, we also propose Orin can be used in places of the other Buddhist altars that matching with modern lifestyles.
