Vegetarian meal in Kasuisai Temple

Buddhist monks in Japan were not generally allowed to eat meats such as beef and pork. So, they ate a vegetarian meal. Today, some Japanese temples offer such a vegetarian meal to guests. One of the temples is Kasuisai Temple.

Kasuisai Temple is in Shizuoka pref. I stayed in the temple, and had vegetarian meal at dinner and breakfast. Since it is healthy, having a vegetarian meal in temples is popular these days.
