Hanten, called "suzu-kake" worn by a Shugen-sha or Yamabushi who practiced Shugendo. Shugendo is the Japanese unique religion combining Buddhism, Shintoism, and worship of nature (mountains). A practioner (shugen-sha) trained himself in the holy mountains that is ascetic and very painstaking. This one is made of asa (hemp) for warps and cotton for wefts. It has letters as "Kongo-Zao-Daigongen" which is the main buddha in Kinpusen-ji in Nara. In excellent condition. The first quater of the 20th century. 128cm x 97cm
