Kobe Meiji 1900s Unknown
Mayasan Tenjoji is a Buddhist temple dedicated to Maya, mother of Shakyamuni Buddha at Mount Maya in Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture. An annual festival used to take place on the 7th Day of the 7th Moon, when devotees ascended the mountain by night, giving birth to the English nickname “Moon Temple.” As Maya is a guardian deity of women, people also came to pray for easy childbirth and good health for their children.
