Drinking to health (for free) – Nara Daianji Kounin-e

Daianji is one of the Seven Great Temples of Nara. It attracts followers with the promise of protection from cancer. Buddhist rites for the healing are held at the temple and a healing sake is being sold.

Twice a year, the temple hosts a festival when the alcohol is poured for free to the pilgrims.
