Join us as we learn about life at the Otowasan Kannonji Temple through 24 terms from the solar calendar. First, we follow the nuns on the day of boshu as they prepare ume plums. Every year, they use the ume to make sake, miso and juice, and this year's batch looks particularly tasty. Then, after plucking tea leaves in the garden, they learn how to process the leaves and use them to make rice porridge on the early summer equinox, also known as geshi.
