Butsugenji Temple, located in Rokkaku Aburakoji-cho, Nakagyo Ward, Kyoto City, is holding a ``Teranomi'' event on its grounds, where people can mingle while enjoying sake. The idea was to make the temple a place where people from all walks of life could easily visit. Deputy chief priest Kazuki Aburanokoji (age 33) says, ``When you open the lid of Namazake, the taste and aroma change, which leads to the idea of the impermanence of all things.It's also an opportunity for people to become more familiar with Buddhism.''
