I wish for a state of perfect health with "Kabocha Taki (boiled Pumpkin)" from "Yatadera Temple"

The year is coming to an end.

Why don't you eat pumpkins and stay healthy during the New Year's holiday?

I would like to introduce you to "Yata Jizoson (Yatadera Temple)" located in a corner of Teramachi Kyogoku shopping street.

This temple has a "Kabocha Kuyo (Pumpkin memorial service)" on December 23.

The large "Pumpkin" attracts attention in the precincts.

It is said that stroking this pumpkin will bring good luck such as perfect health.

On the day of the event, the "Kabocha Taki (boiled Pumpkin)" will be held.

It will be given to the first 1000 people.

The pumpkin that is cooked softly in a large pot has a sweet and warm taste.

Why don't you stop by during shopping at the end of the year or during your outing?
