Temple for Lost Babies
While in Japan in the 80′s, and wandering through many side roads, I came across a little temple that intrigued me and I entered. I was fascinated by all the clothing and mementos of babies, and was told it was a temple dedicated to lost babies and prostitutes. The latter because of the plight of women and the babies they gave birth to.
I was very moved by this and felt it was an awful thing that we did not acknowledge it in the west. So here is a place for the memory of the precious child or children we have lost. It is a place to leave mementos of such babies, and to remember them with love.
