DESCRIPTION

Led by Rev. Gengo Akiba with opening remarks about the Japanese New Year by Yoshie Akiba, the ceremony will include a purification ritual and chanting of the Buddhist Heart Sutra. Rev. Akiba will begin the bell ringing, and participants may take their turns ringing the museum’s sixteenth-century bronze bell to leave behind the bad experiences, wrong deeds and ill luck of the previous year. First come, first served. Pick up tickets to ring the bell at the admission desk.
