-Monkeys are said to be close to humans, but they act as animals and greed.If you go to the zoo, monkeys are running around with greed. This figure is likened to the desire in man, and it is tied by Mr. Koshin so that "desire" in man does not move. -Source: From the official site of Yasaka Koshin
It is called "The Round Monkey", and it shows the appearance that the ape was tied up hands and feet and was not able to move.
I entrust a wish to a round ape, and the secret to grant it is to endure one's greed. -Source: From the official site of Yasaka Koshin
The analogy of a human desire as a "monkey" is a unique thing to fulfill your wish by enduring that desire.
How would you like to ask?
I buy a round monkey, and write a wish and a name in "a Circle ball". The "Round monkey" is hung to the spot in the precincts with the wish. It is said that the wish will come true by "endure one greed" after it visits.
Where to buy
It is common to buy directly in the shrine where the tie monkey is decorated, and make a wish on the spot. However, the "round monkey" of the shrine is handmade and limited production.Let's go to the shrine early and get it. There is also a place sold as a "round monkey" in the net.
Where is the shrine?
It is a temple called Kongoji (Yasaka Koshin-Yasaka refreshing) of Kyoto. It is so popular now that it has become the spot of the Insta shooting which represents Kyoto.
