Description: The Shin sect of Buddhism is the largest in Japan and one of the largest in the Buddhist world. Although it is divided into the Nishi (Western) Hongwanji and the Higashi (Eastern) Hongwanji, there is very little difference or friction between them. This is the central shrine of the chief temple of the Nishi Hongwanji of Shin Buddhism, in Kyoto, a place of great sanctity for millions of people.
