After receiving an explanation from one of the temple's Buddhist priest in English about the history and facilities of Jindaiji Temple, the guest witnessed a Goma fire ritual. Finally, the preist painted a Sanskrit letter on the left eye of the Daruma dolls. The dolls used were Tokyo-produced Tama Daruma, which will be used to pray for good business in Tokyo.

There are many soba shops in the area around Jindaiji Temple, and it is famous as “Jindaiji soba”. As such, the participants were able to enjoy a special soba making experience at Jindaiji Temple. This was an informative and in-depth experience, during which participants could compare the differences between their own and the instructor's soba.
