What to Expect
Kiyosumi park feaures many kinds of rocks and stones from all over Japan together with trees and flowers and man-made mountain. (Stones are typically appreciated in Japanse gardens.) Turtles and Carps will be welcoming you from the pond!
Homa ritual is priest's praying while burning ceder sticks offered by followers to ward off evil and make their wishes come true. This ritual will take 30 minuites together with chanting of sutras and the sound of drums and shell horns. It's dynamic and fascinating!
Around the approach there are many small but characteristic shops and restaurants of local specialities such as Fukagawa rice bowl of simmered clams. It's nice to browse and have lunch after terminating the tour.
