Let's enjoy a special time at Daisho-in which is considered to be the oldest temple in Miyajima of Aki.​ ​
This plan offers you a cool experience to wear a noble princess-kimono and play "tosenkyo", a Japanese traditional game.
​ ​

"Tosenkyo" is an old traditional game similar to "Darts", where targets called "Chou" (means butterfly) perched on the wooden box called "Makura" (means pillow) and a player tosses an opened fan to the target. Scores determined according to the position of the fan, the target and the box.​ ​

It is not just a game of achieving scores, it is a demonstration of an elegant movement and its rules were described in the Tale of Genji, and moreover, a decoration of a butterfly and a pillow is so beautiful.​ ​
This unique game was created nearly 250 years ago in Japan.

There are different rules of Tosenkyo depending on schools and regions, but​ ​
in this plan you will learn basic and simple rules, so you can enjoy the game with an easy mind.​ ​
This game became very popular among town residents during Edo period. Let's dream about Heian culture.​ ​
The event will be held either at Daisho-in Hall where you can enjoy a panoramic sea view or at Shoseian Hall located in the Japanese garden.

After tosenkyo game, you may remain in your heian-style kimono and walk around Daisho-in for about 30 min.​ ​
※English speaking guide is provided for tosenkyo experience.​ ​
※This plan is for ladies only.

「Tosenkyo」and「Tsuboshozoku (Heian-style Kimono)」
