Do you know the "Kuyou"? "Kuyou" is a Buddhism term, which means praying to gods or souls of deceased person in the manner of offering flowers or other offerings. In fact, in addition to bring offerings to the deceased person, the "object" may also be worshiped in some shrines and temples. As for such offering, I've tried to sort out two kinds of conspicuous offering activities during this period.

It's ok! This is a formal offering method called Daruma Kuyo. You can rest assured. The Daruma Kuyo in the manner of burning is held at the Koumyouden, KouNishi-Arai Daishi Temple on February 3 of each year.
