Buddhist Temple Attracting Young Visitors with Moe-Characters of Gods
About a month ago, Ryoho-ji(了法寺) Temple located in Hachioji put up a sign board featuring moe-characters by the temple's entrance. Since then, the number of young male visitors is increasing and now they've launched a website in which the cute gods and goddesses tell you about Buddhism in general and how to attend a temple properly.
