Interesting meeting

That was a really interesting meeting. We talk about buddhist religion and more. We create our rosary and had a good time. :) Maybe next time we will come in Tera Cafe just as Cafe visitors.

Bardzo ciekawe doświadczenie, jeśli choć trochę mówisz po japońsku warto tam pójść. Można porozmawiać z buddystą na przeróżne ciekawe tematy i przy tym dobrze się bawić robiąc bransoletkę. Nikt nie pospiesza. Można porozmawiać o buddyźmie i dowiedzieć się wielu rzeczy.

Making a Juzu at the talked about cafe

Reviewed by: taro, 2016/02/10

Recently I've been seeing the Tera Cafe on TV or online, so I decided to go ahead and give the Juzu making a try.

The four of us in my family all wanted to go, and since booking pink (New Quartz) and blue (New Aquamarine) or green (New Jade) has to be done separately, I booked 3 of us for blue/green and 1 for pink.
Just a bit after booking, one of the staff from the cafe called to confirm my details.

The store was even closer to Daikanyama Station that I expected, and it was really easy to see with the 5 colored drapery and store logo.
The inside was like a Western cafe, but unique with the shrine to the Amitabha Buddha inside.

This cafe apparently has a monk who is resident, but the staff that day was a woman.
Even my elementary school boy and 3 year old daughter had fun, as the instructions were clear and well taught.
We even learned a bit about the parts of the Juzu, like the ""Oyadama"" parent ball and the ""Basa"" pieces.
We fit the kids' by removing stones until the size was just right, and everyone had a picture perfect one by the end.
It felt really nice to make something just how you imagined it.
You can wear it all the time or just carry it with you when you go to visit a temple.

I was focused on making the Juzu today, but the more I think about it the more I think that talking about Buddhism or the temples would have been nice. It's not really a topic you get to talk about a lot.

That's it about the Juzu rosary making, but actually... We went a bit early and had lunch at the cafe too.
The price is a bit high but the quality and contents are really delicious, so I recommend it.
