I’m in Japan today and won’t necessarily be able to link up. I am thinking of you all however.

*
Today I am going to Sanjusangendo temple. The first time I went I was moved to tears by the overwhelming compassion. I won’t say more in case you get to go some time. I knew I wanted to return here.
*
Also my husband is close to impossible to buy for. Last time I was here, I found a gift for him that he has kept in his den.
*
They sell these satin embroidered bags, about the size and shape of a tea bag.
*

*

This one has a tree embroidered on it and is a blessing for health.

*

They have all different ones. I bought some for the grandchildren, with an image of a boy and girl. They are a blessing for children. One lady in my group was asking if they had one to find a mate. I don’t think they did.

*

As I recall they cost about 500 to 800 yen. ( about $6 to $10.)

This golden one looks like it came from Sanjusangendo.

*

This is paper with some thickness inside.

*

*

If my memory is correct, this one I got for myself. It’s a prayer for relief of headaches. Now, let’s see if they have one for memory. XD

*

Sending you all a prayer and good wishes.
