  • Origin and Historical Significance

    The term "Yakushigama" is derived from a miniature shrine dedicated to Yakushi Nyorai, the Buddha of medicine, which stood within the grounds of Chugai Toen until the end of the Edo Era. It was said to have been built by the Buddhist priest Gyoki.

  • Cultural Legacy and Annual Festival

    Yakushi Nyorai is currently enshrined in Seto’s Hosenji Temple, and every year on November 8th and 12th , a festival is held in his honor. The festival has become a late-autumn tradition of Seto city.

  • Divine Protection, Decorative Charm

    Yakushigama ceramics are said to offer Yakushi Nyorai’s divine protection to those suffering from eye conditions, while the ornaments’ eye-catching designs promote a sense of calm and enjoyment wherever they are displayed.
