Eisai Zenji 栄西禅師

Once a year on a day in December, the Rinzai group of Okayama prefecture meets to clean the memorial birth place of Eisai Zenji, which is in Okayama prefecture. He brought Zen over from China, as well as tea seeds, which were planted in Japan, also being the teacher of Dogen Zenji.

Here are some pictures of the cleaning by the priests, finishing up with a Daihishu sutra and a bowl of hot Udon noodles.
