The spirit of YAMATO 
Pilgrimage to 2 most Beautiful Kannon

Please contact me and I will let you know in details. 

There are so many Kannon statues worshiped in temples in Japan.  Although Kannon is known as "the Goddess of mercy", they appear in a variety of images symbolizing their special powers.  

 

 

"The Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage (西国三十三所 Saigoku Sanjūsan-sho) " is a pilgrimage of thirty-three Buddhist temples throughout the Kansai region and it has about 1,200 years of history.

 

I will take you to 2 of my favorite Kannons in Yamato, especially with stronger feminine features.  Both of them has interesting origin and legends and history over 1,300 years.  They are surrounded by a variety of other deities, clearly showing the religious interaction among Shintoism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, etc. 

 

* "Kannon" is a Japanese way of calling " Kuan-Yin" in China.
